From the creative mind of acclaimed director Peter Sellars comes his very first a cappella staging – and most personal work to date. Orlando di Lasso knew that Lagrime di San Pietro (Tears of St. Peter) – his glorious 1594 cycle of 20 madrigals plus a motet – was to be the last piece he would ever compose, so he packed every measure with intensity and poetic lyricism, creating a towering work of beauty. Twenty-one singers transform this sweeping Renaissance masterpiece into an overwhelmingly emotional performance piece.
“Lagrime is a major accomplishment for the Master Chorale, which sang and acted brilliantly. It is also a major accomplishment for music history.”
– Mark Swed, LA Times
