This monumental, twenty-seven-part setting of the Responsoria is “Gesualdo’s masterpiece, his cathedral of shadows. A Passion in all but name, the tortuous harmonies of the responses are put to sacred ends; throughout, Gesualdo displays a madrigalist’s alertness to verbal detail, evoking the betrayal, trial, and Crucifixion of Jesus with a flair that might have caused a scandal if the work had been performed more widely.” Alex Ross, The New Yorker
