Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Gentle restraint in the relatively simple textures... Mellifluous singing in the plainchant items, confirms PCA’s fluent versatility." — BBCMusic

"The singing itself is superb, the group includes many distinguished singers, and the impact of the performances is enhanced by the closeness of the sound, set in a warm but intimate acoustic... The magnificent 8part Stabat Mater also receives a powerful performance, warm and resonant." — Penguin Guide

Stabat Mater and the Missa Aeterna Christi Munera are regarded as two of Palestrina's finest compositions, and two of the greatest works of Renaissance polyphony. These works are performed flawlessly by the famous Pro Cantione Antiqua.
