    Today, Palestrina is perhaps the best known composer of the Renaissance period. Likewise, during his lifetime he was the one of the most famous musicians of the day. After his death, Palestrina was laid to rest in one of the side chapels of St. Peter’s, the plaque on his coffin bearing the inscription, “Prince of Music.” The program will explore the various facets of his genius and will include his Missa Confitebor tibi Domine, a brilliant work sumptuously scored for double choir.
