Salve regina

composer
SSAT ATTB
author of text
Antiphon to the Virgin Mary from Trinity until Advent

 
Anerio’s setting of the Salve regina contrasts a high choir with a low one, something unusual in Roman double-choir music and more reminiscent of Venetian compositions of the period. The restrained setting matches well the imploring mood of the text while Anerio relies for expression on the sharpening of thirds and the juxtaposition of major and minor harmonies, something which underlines the poignancy of the words.

from notes by Andrew Carwood © 2011

Le Salve regina d’Anerio oppose un chœur aigu à un chœur grave, ce qui est rare dans la musique à double chœur romaine et rappelle plutôt les compositions vénitiennes de l’époque. La mise en musique tout en retenue va bien avec le climat implorant du texte, Anerio appuyant son expression sur la hausse de tierces et la juxtaposition d’harmonies en majeur et en mineur, ce qui accuse le côté poignant des paroles.

Français: Hypérion

In Anerios Vertonung des Salve regina wird ein hoher Chor einem tiefen gegenübergestellt, was für das doppelchörige Repertoire Roms ungewöhnlich ist und eher an die venezianischen Komponisten der Zeit erinnert. Die zurückhaltene Vertonung passt gut zu der flehenden Stimmung des Texts, während Anerio durch die Erhöhung von Terzen und die Gegenüberstellung von Dur und Moll, womit die Schmerzlichkeit des Texts unterstrichen wird, für Ausdruck sorgt.
