Notes & Reviews:
This mid-priced reissue features James O'Donnell and the Westminster Cathedral Choir at the peak of their powers, performing key works of the Italian Renaissance. These two magnificent and contrasting mass settings perfectly demonstrate why Palestrina has been acknowledged as the master of this repertoire from his lifetime to the present day. Included are the Missa de Beata Virgine and the Missa Ave Maria.
