FEATURED COMPOSERS
Stravinsky, Igor: Tres sacrae cantiones (Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa) (1959)
for mixed chorus a cappella

Territory

This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.

Repertoire Note

These three Sacred Songs, all with missing parts, were completed by Stravinsky for the 400th anniversary of Gesualdo's birth. According to Robert Craft: "What he has done is to recompose the whole from the point of view of his added parts, with a result that is not pure Gesualdo, but a fusion of the two composers."
