Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Palestrina's mellifluous counterpoint resonates like whipped cream in the cathedral acoustics, yet the clarity and sensitivity of texture is exemplary. Delicious." – The Scotsman

This is a thoughtful, carefully analysed performance – Baker and the Westminster choir communicate a clear sense of the structural logic. The singers are excellent … virtually flawless. Shut your eyes and you can almost smell the incense. Very warmly recommended.
