ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Three new a cappella settings of the texts Ardens est cor meum, Regina Caeli and Vox dilecti mei by composer Giacomo Cataldo, performed by the CMP Chamber Choir conducted by Jan Ocetek.

Cataldo has always had an interest in the sacred choral tradition and this set of motets mark his first contribution to the form.

The texts selected for all three of these works have a long musical history. Apart from numerous polyphonic settings, the first musical use of all three texts was as Gregorian or plainsong chant. The text of Ardens est cor meum is associated with Easter Saturday, as would only be natural considering its meaning. The text Regina caeli also appears to date from the middle ages and is one of the four seasonal Marian antiphons. The text Vox dilecti mei is taken from the Canticum canticorum (Song of Songs, or Songs of Solomon).

Musically, Cataldo envisioned these works as a continuing evolution of this rich tradition.

Gorgeous harmonically rich a cappella pieces
Gorgeous music. Harmonically rich with hypnotic polyphonic interweaving. Deeply spiritual but also deeply emotional music. Cataldo reinvents this genre for the 21st century.
Wonderful vocal tone from the choir.
