Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (±1525-1594): Si ignoras te, o pulchra

Palestrina’s set of twenty-nine motets for performance by groups such as sodalities and prayers was published in 1584 in Rome in the Motet­torum Quin­que Vocibus LIBER QUAR­TUS. Palestrina’s intent was that they could be performed by groups of varying abilities and resources to compose what amounted to vocal chamber music. Si ignoras te, o pulchra is the fifth in the series. Enjoy :-)
