Siglo de Oro present a programme of late Renaissance choral music for Holy Week. The centrepiece is an effervescent double-choir mass for Easter Day by Hieronymus Praetorius, organist at Hamburg's Jakobikirche in the early 17th century. Alongside Praetorius' masterpiece are Passiontide motets by composers whose influence is heard in the mass: Bavarian Hans Leo Hassler, Netherlandish Orlande de Lassus, and Venetian Andrea Gabrieli.
