Gesualdo: Tenebræ Responses For Good Friday
Taverner Consort & Choir, Andrew Parrott (director)
Andrew Parrott and his Taverner Consort and Choir honour the 400th anniversary of 16th-century Italian composer Carlo Gesualdo with a reissue of their seminal recording of Tenebrae Responses for Good Friday. Honouring the 400th anniversary of Carlo Gesualdo, the harmonically adventurous and experimental 16th-century Italian composer, Prince of Venosa, Andrew Parrott and his Taverner Consort and Choir offer a newly repackaged reissue of their seminal recording of Tenebae, the composer’s final group of sacred madrigals devoted to Good Friday. The Taverner singers navigate Gesualdo’s highly symbolic polyphonic structures with idiomatic first-rate performances and incisive scholarship.
