Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, September 2014
The subtle ebb and flow of the speed in Vox dilecti, for example, exactly matches the quickening emotions at the sound of the voice of the beloved, and the ascending musical motives at the call for her to rise up and come hither at beautifully handled by the singers in Surge propera.

Early Music Today
The balance of voices, sensitivity to the text, ebb and flow of phrases, and uniformity of sound, all suggest that these discs will be listened to decades from now.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2014
The energy that The Sixeen bring to their Palestrina is admirable, though I continue to hope for a surprise in the format to keep the series on its toes.

Harry Christophers and The Sixteen continue their exploration of Palestrina's great work with the fifth disc in their celebrated series! This album features a selection of Palestrina's music for Pentecost, including his Missa Iam Christus astra ascenderat. Volume 3 of the series was nominated for a prestigious Grammy Award®, and the series continues to receive critical acclaim around the world.
