Music of Renaissance Poland Bartłomiej Pękiel - Missa pulcherrima ad instar Praenestini Motets by Liban, Leopolita, Zieleński & others Influenced by Flemish and Italian models, music composed by Bartłomiej Pękiel and his contemporaries dominated both secular and religious life in the epicenter of arts and culture in Renaissance Poland – the city of Krakow. Both the royal court and the ecclesiastical community of Wawel Cathedral commissioned works from these composers for their pastimes and sumptuous liturgies. Join Polyhymnia as we journey to Krakow to hear Pękiel’s lovely Missa Pulcherrima ad instar Praenestini – composed in the style of Palestrina and based on Polish carols as well as a collection of motets by Polish composers Liban, Leopolita, Zieleński and others.
