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.
