Francesco Suriano, also known as Soriano, was a major composer of the Roman School. His style is similar to Palestrina’s and former composers. He followed the rules of the Concil of Trent, but he also developed polychoral music. He especially composed church music like masses, motets, Magnificats and passion musics. But he also composed madrigal songs. Four collections were published between 1581 and 1602. This “Salve Regina” is very sober and is a beautiful example of neo-tridentin writing. The falsobordone writing highlights the text of that antiphony addressed to Virgin Mary.
