Agnus Dei – Palestrina: “Missa Brevis”
I’ll be featuring music over the next several days—with very little if any commentary, though I will include links about the composer & the work. Today’s selection is the "Agnus Dei" from the "Missa Brevis" by the Renaissance composer Palestrina; most, however, will feature the music of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt.
Thanks as always.
