The madrigals of Marenzio (d1599) are well known, but not his sacred works. This enterprising recording, though sometimes marred by untidiness and by unnecessary instruments, maps their variety. For dazzling word setting try ‘Deus venerunt’ and for cool counterpoint ‘Ave maris stella’. A revelation. Anthony Pryer
