Palestrina Masses and Motets
Most of Palestrina’s 104 Masses were published in the series of twelve books initiated during his lifetime and completed after his death in 1594. The two presented on this recording survive only in manuscripts, in both cases complied for the use of choirs with which Palestrina was associated.
"This record makes one look forward eagerly to further issues from one of our major cathedral choirs under a conductor whose approach is so controlled."
