Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Just as J.S. Bach represents the fullest flowering of the Baroque period, Palestrina stands at the apex of the Renaissance. Palestrina has been worshipped by many composers for his complete mastery of Renaissance polyphony and musical purity. It is said that even Beethoven consulted Palestrina's music when working on the choral movement of his own 9th Symphony. Performances and recorded sound are excellent.

Notes & Reviews:

Includes work(s) by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (Composer).
