Notes & Reviews:

This release present a selection of sacred choral music by Brazil's most famous composer, Heitor Villa-Lobos, performed by one of Hyperion's best-loved recording groups, the Corydon Singers. Villa-Lobos had a grand plan to revitalize music education in his native country via the promotion of choral singing. Among the performances Villa-Lobos directed was the Brazilian premiere of Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli. This inspired him to write his own a cappella Mass, the Missa São Sebastião, which is the featured work on this disc. Also included is a rich selection of sacred motets.
