Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (±1525-1594): Angelus Domini II a 5

Palestrina’s recounting of the story of the Angel in the garden appearing to the two women and telling them that Christ is risen is a gloriously sunny and happy piece of music. I love how Palestrina contrasts the floating syncopation at ‘quem quaeritis‘ (‘he whom you seek’) with the vigour of ‘surrexit‘ (‘is risen’). Enjoy :-).
