Programme Note
Peter Maxwell Davies Gesualdo: Two Motets (1982)
The pieces come from the volume of motets in five voices which Gesualdo published in 1603. Davies's transcriptions are straight except for the addition of dynamic markings, and bring out both the disquieting harmonic plangency and the grandeur of Gesualdo's thought.
