Notes and Editorial Reviews

In this album we find Westminster Cathedral Choir at the peak of their powers, performing masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance. These two magnificent and contrasting settings perfectly demonstrate why Palestrina has been acknowledged as the master of this repertoire from his lifetime to the present day.

'For sheer sumptuousness of sound quality and clarity of text, the performance...ranks alongside the finest' (Classic CD)

'Powerful and intensely moving' (BBC Record Review)
