Sicut lilium inter spinas I
This five-voice piece comes from Palestrina’s earliest set of motets, published in Rome in 1569; and to judge from its style it may be one of his student works. Already, though, it has all the poise and polish that make Palestrina’s music so famous. The words are from the biblical Song of Songs: ‘Like a lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters of Adam’.
