Giovanni Francesco Anerio was born in Rome about 1567 he was active as a musician and maestro di capella in various Roman churches of which the most prestigious was at Santa Maria dei Monti from 1613 to 1620. He published his Missa Pro defunctis in 1614. It's unusual in that Anerio included the 'Dies Irae' ('Day of wrath') using alternating polyphony and plainsong. This sequence is the Mass' centrepiece and Anerio took great care to match the words and music. Also somewhat unusually he ends with a 'Kyrie in absolutione' instead of the more usual 'Libera Me' it's a beautifully calm almost luminous ending to a beautiful setting of the Mass suffused by plainsong both as cantus firmus and as paraphrase.
