Out of the Shadows: Sacred Music of Francisco Guerrero and Thomas Crecquillon
King Solomon's Singers is pleased to announce the release of their 2nd recording,
Out of the Shadows: Sacred Music of Francisco Guerrero and Thomas Crecquillon.
This recording highlights the works of two Renaissance masters that were acclaimed in their own time but have been overshadowed
in the recent revival of interest in Renaissance polyphony. We perform some of the most well-known works by each composer, but we
also debut three works that (to our knowledge) have never before been recorded: Crecquillon's Philippe, qui videt me,
a short fanfare probably written for the entries of Prince Philip of Spain and his father, the emperor Charles V, in the Low
Countries in 1549; Crecquillon's setting of the tale of Susanna and the Elders, Ingemuit Susanna; and Guerrero's
alternatim-style Easter hymn, Tristes erant apostoli. The recording was made in the Jim & Kay Mabie Performance
Studio at WBEZ in Chicago with recording engineer Mary Gaffney and underwritten by a generous gift from Robert & Susan Crawford,
to whom the recording is dedicated.
The recording is available on CD from cdbaby and The Seminary Co-op Bookstore
and via digital download on iTunes, Amazon, and other major distribution sites.
