This recording commemorates the four-hundredth anniversary of the death of Luca Marenzio (1553-1599). Best known as a madrigalist, he also wrote a considerable amount of sacred works, many of which are recorded here. Marenzio traveled frequently and at one point in his career served under King Sigismund III of Poland, where many of his extant works, such as the incomplete Missa super Iniquos odio habui were published. The motets are taken from his Motecta festorum totius anni (1585) and Sacrae Cantiones (published posthumously in 1616).
