Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (±1525-1594): Laeva eius sub capite meo

Laeva eius sub capite meo (His left hand is under my head) the thirteenth in the set of twenty-nine motets based upon the Song of Songs is a striking and strikingly sensual piece of music – it’s sacred music certainly but like so many of these motets it makes a lot of use of word-painting to match the sesuous text.  Enjoy :-)
