Palestrina: Missa Gabriel Archangelus

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation
of the Archangel Gabriel to the Most Blessed Virgin

As there is no day of the year in which this Great Archangel is so joyful for having been tasked by Almighty God to bear His Message of Divine Mercy to mankind we can do no better than to rejoice with this Great Archangel and pledge to him that from now on we shall be especially loyal to God Most High and devoted to the Most Holy Ever Virgin Mary, Mother of Our God and Savior!

As we continue our perusal of the sacred repertoire of  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the greatest Italian composer of the 16th century, we sample his motet Missa Gabriel Archangelus, a musical composition for the feast of the Archangel on March 24.

This performance is  by the Choir of Swiss Radio.

FromRome.Info features at 5 P.M. daily, Rome time, a selection of sacred music for the edification of our readers, so that they can better grasp how contrary to the very nature of Catholic liturgy were the so called “reforms” of Vatican II.

Br. Bugnolo: I wish to publicly thank this great Archangel, who on his feast day enabled me to upload the Perpetual Supplica video in 24 minutes, when it normally takes 100! It was a miracle of cellphone technology.
