CD launched to enhance appreciation of Italian Golden Age art exhibition

The appreciation of "Art and Religion: A Special Exhibition of Italian Paintings from the 14th to the 17th Centuries" acquires an added dimension with the launching of a special music CD.
Professor Chen Han-chin from the Soochow University's Music Conservatory personally selected the music for the album sold only at the exhibition site and at Sunrise Records (77-4 Chungshan North Road, Sec. 2, Taipei).
Chen chose to include Allegri's "Miserere mei, Deus," Palestrina's "Exultate Deo" and "Sicut cervus," Parsons' "Ave Maria," Viadana's "Exultate justi," Gabrieli's "Jubilate Deo," Lotti's "Crucifixus," Victoria's "O quam gloriosum," Tallis' "In manus tuas," Byrd's "Haec dies" and Monteverdi's "Cantate Domino."
The Italian Golden Age painting exhibition, which will stay on view at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei until March 10 next year, has taken the Graduate Institute of Museum Studies at the Fu Jen Catholic University at least three years to organize.
The Vatican Museum, the Pinacoteca di Siena, the Accademia Carrara and the Museo Diocesano Milano have loaned paintings to the exhibition. The borrowed works have been classified to represent early Christian art, Renaissance art and Baroque art.
The story of Jesus' life from the Annunciation to the Ascension is told through 21 paintings. Another eleven paintings are devoted to the apostles and the saints.
