Pitoni: Laudate Dominum (Steele) SATB

Books | SATB

Catalogue No: CH08820
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Giuseppe Ottavio Pitoni (1657-1743) was an Italian organist and composer, and one of the leading figures in the late Baroque era. He wrote an extensive oeuvre of liturgical music, with over 200 motets, 300 masses, and 800 Psalm settings. He bridged the gap between the counterpoint-driven styles of Palestrina and Scarlatti, and the more homophonic and harmony-driven works of Handel and Vivaldi, becoming a master of both styles in his own right. His setting of the Laudate Dominum (Psalm 150) is for unaccompanied SATB chorus. Having been edited by the noted musicologist J. Steele, it is a suitable motet for any church service, or would make a perfect recital item.

    A short but lively piece and most enjoyable to sing. However the timing has the potential to catch short less experienced singers and choir directors - so beware! Laudate Dominum is a work that needs to be sung with some degree of enthusiasm and musicality. Enjoy!!
