Carlo Gesualdo – O Vos Omnes

O Vos Omnes Gesualdo

Carlo Gesualdo (Venosa, 8 March 1560 — Gesualdo, 8 September 1613), also known as Gesualdo da Venosa (Gesualdo from Venosa), Prince of Venosa and Count of Conza, was an Italian nobleman, lutenist, composer and murderer.

As a composer of the late Renaissance, he is remembered for writing intensely expressive madrigals and sacred music that use a chromatic language not heard again until the late 19th century.
