Precibus et meritis
Gesualdo is best known for his weird and wonderful madrigals, but he also turned his hand to composing motets. This one, from his first book of ‘cantiones sacrae’ – ‘sacred songs’ – was published in Naples in 1603. Its text is used up to the present day as part of the Apostolic Blessing ‘Urbi et Orbi’, delivered by the pope every year at Easter and on Christmas Day.
