The Harmonies of Heaven

This week Early Music Now showcases an exciting recent release from Concerto Palatino called 'Nature's Secret Whispering- Music in the Cosmology of Johannes Kepler'. Kepler longed for harmony, both celestial and earthly, and this superb CD presents music he probably knew, by composers like Lassus, Andrea Gabrieli, and Lambert de Sayve. All selections performed by Concerto Palatino directed by renowned cornettist Bruce Dickey.

Orlando di Lasso (Lassus): Tui sunt coeli; In me transierunt; Si coelum et coeli coelorum

Andrea Gabrieli: Deus misereatur nostril; Beati quorum remissiae sunt;

Hans Leo Hassler: Jubilate Deo;  Annibale Perini: Cantate Domino  

Lambert de Sayve: Miserere mei Deus; De profundis clamavi;  Erasmus Widmann: Intrada and Cantzon;  
Lambert de Sayve: O quam suavis est;  Annibale Perini: Laudate Dominum;  

A. Gabrieli: Emendemus in melius;  Lassus: Aurora lucis rutilat;  de Sayve: Regna triumphalem;
