Respected musician, arranger, composer, and clinician William Tortolano has edited these two motets by Baroque composer G.B. Martini: "In Monte Oliveti" (On the Mount of Olives) and "Tristis Est Anima Mea"(Sorrowful is My Soul) for SAB chorus a cappella. For use on Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, and Good Friday, these first-rate editions are ideal for all serious choirs or ensembles with limited forces. The vertical harmonic structure and underlay of melody and text are naturally accessible, and you will find these a pleasure to program and perform. Listen and hear for yourself.
