Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Few composers of the sixteenth century have attracted such myths about their output as Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina. For many, Palestrina was the epitome of Roman Catholic music: 'a genius whose works breathes divine harmony, and enable us to sing in a style so truly sublime the praises of our Maker.' With performances by the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, this recording concentrates on the offertories from Advent Sunday to Trinity Sunday, taken from Offertoria totius anni secundum Sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae consuetudinem, published in 1593. Palestrina's reverence for the liturgical role of music is expressed throughout his oeuvre and induces a sense of awe in the listener. These exquisite performances reveal the highly controlled polyphony for which Palestrina is so famous. The motets epitomize his restrained compositional style, features of which are the use of carefully prepared dissonance and discrete word painting.

BBC Music Magazine
... this mixed choir of 30 voices is persuasive and confident an demonstrates clearly the variety and ingenuity of Palestrina's compositional technique.
