Missa Ave Regina caelorum
The concluding high point of the Canzioniere is in the eight sonnets in which the beloved Laura is raised up to ‘madonna angelicata’ in the invocation to Mary the Mother of God. Each of the eight madrigals of this spiritual love poem begins with the invocation "Vergine", and this has also given the pieces their name.
In Palestrina's works, the settings of these spiritual madrigals fall between his sacred and his secular compositions, and therefore occupy a special position. The Ensemble Officium, under the direction of Wilfried Rombach, include in this CD the first recording of Palestrina's Missa Ave Regina caelorum.
