Description:
The madrigals in this book by De Rore were published after his death. Some of them are rather ‘experimental’, e.g. in O sonno, showing sequences that remind to Lassus’ Prophetiæ Sybillarum. The title (O Sleep) is deceiving: one cannot fall asleep while singing this madrigal; it’s too difficult, although mostly homophonic. Remarkable in this book is the combination of two composers that are both great enough to be published on their own account: De Rore and Palestrina. Yet there were other occasions of De Rore and Palestrina featuring in one book: In the Choirbook Ms. 46 in the Bavarian State Library there is the Missa Benedicta es by da Palestrina (also available at Donemus) and the Missa Praeter rerum seriem by De Rore.
