The sacred voices of Cecilianism
Named in honor of Saint Cecilia, patron saint of music, Cecilianism was a response to the almost centennial absence of Gregorian chant and Renaissance polyphony from liturgical celebrations. In this recording, pieces composed by the great supporters of the Cecilian movement alternate with sacred music by local composers. The authors present in the repertoire are: Shell, Riccardo Pedrotti, Romeo Gerosa, Giuseppe Zaninetti, don Fortunato Odorizzi, Ciro Grassi, Franz Xaver Witt, Edoardo Köll, P.Eppink, Peter Heinrich Thielen [Fanzine srl, 2003].
