Notes & Reviews:

Sublime, magnificent church music by one of the greatest composers of the Renaissance. Often imitated, but never bettered, the calm grandeur of Palestrina's motets for four, five, or even eight voices has inspired generations of listeners, who continue to seek out his music's mellifluous perfection.
