Divine? Perhaps. But immortal? No. In reality, the composer lived from about 1525 to 1594, but so all-embracing was his genius that he could apparently look back beyond immediate predecessors for inspiration, could be entirely of his own time, or might write music whose tonal clarity ensured admiration and performances (sometimes with C17 trappings such as basso continuo) well beyond his death. This workshop will investigate these Ďalternative Palestrinasí, perhaps along the way exploding the odd myth about him.
