Description: Giorgi spent his career in Rome and Lisbon; his offertories and motets are in the severe, Roman polychoral style but with solo voices sometimes singled out, leavened with the use of madrigalistic techiques, while the mass (from Lisbon) increases the concertante use of solo voices in the more modern style and, interestingly, is among the first mass to use Italian tempo indications, a trait which looks ahead to the early Classical period.
