Notes & Reviews:

One can hardly think of music in Rome without immediately being drawn to the work of the Sistine Chapel, an institution well-known for maintaining a philosophy for the "pure" performance of vocal music without instruments. The Papal Choir was revered throughout Europe during the Renaissance Period for authoritative expertise and performance capabilities with regard to Gregorian Chant and polyphonic choral music. But the decades surrounding the turn of the 17th Century brought many exciting and creative developments in the composition and performance of sacred music, leading to the advent of what we now call the Baroque Period. The scope of this recording traces the evolution of musical trends at the Collegio Germanic and the manner by which they began to permeate sacred music across Europe. From Gregorian Chant to Renaissance polyphony to grand-scale masterworks and intimate sacred duets, this repertoire illuminates the breathtaking depth of creativity born during this golden age of church music.
