As we commemorate the four hundredth anniversary of the death of Gesualdo in 2013, one of his last works still remains to be discovered: the second book of Sacrae Cantiones, motets in six and seven voices, of which the bassus and sextus parts have alas disappeared. Thanks to his unrelenting and methodical research, James Wood has managed to reconstruct the score for the first time as it might have been sung in 1603. This fascinating investigation took three years to complete; here is the resulting sound, like a precious gem recovered from nowhere!
