Palestrina: Volume 5

Harry Christophers / The Sixteen

COR 16124 - 0828021612428

Information GreatBrittain Germany

The fifth disc in The Sixteen's celebrated Palestrina series. This album features a selection of Palestrina’s music for Pentecost including his Missa Iam Christus astra ascenderat. Alongside the Mass are motets from the Song of Songs. The Song of Songs are among some of Palestrina’s most sublime and expressive works and, as with previous disc in the series, this album includes three of them. Dedicated to Pope Gregory XIII, Palestrina’s style of writing for these sensual texts demonstrates what variety and intensity of feeling can be conveyed with the simplest of means.
