Palestrina composed a madrigal so popular that it became musical source material for many sacred works including Baldassare Vialardo’s Missa Vestiva I colli, here recorded with the sections interleaved with motets by Cima, Grancini, Rognoni, Donati, Banchieri, Selma and Dongois. This is a marvellous programme and, if the singing is a bit Germanic and the acoustics cool, there’s plenty of sunshine in the sprightly, shapely playing of Musica Fiorita.
