Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (±1525-1594): Surgam et circuibo civitatem

Surgam et circuibo civitatem (I will arise and go about the city) is the eighteenth in the series of motets based upon The Song of Solomon that he wrote in 1583 and received its first of many publications the next year in Rome. Palsestrina assembled the biblical texts and set them for performance by the devotional groups that flourished at that time under the influence of the Oratorian movement of St Philip Neri. Enjoy :-)
