Notes & Reviews:
Martin Baker's recordings of Palestrina with Westminster Cathedral Choir have been highly praised across the world. This album features a sumptuous recording of works dedicated to the festival of Christmas, the main work being the stunning Missa Hodie Christus natus est - one of Palestrina's most popular works. This is music of great devotional beauty, all sung with Westminster Cathedral Choir's customary finesse and atmospheric reverence.
This is a thrilling recording of Palestrina’s music for the Christmas season.
