Croce, Giovanni: Musica Sacra (1608)


Croce’s madrigal style may be compared to that of Thomas Morley, and the Musica Sacra settings of the seven penitential psalms, set for six voices and published by Thomas East, were hugely popular in England. They were spoken of admiringly not only by Morley himself, but also by John Dowland and Henry Peacham.
