Notes & Reviews:

Volume two of The Sixteen's new series devoted to Palestrina is based around his glorious antiphon for Christmas Day. Palestrina's legacy and impact on sacred music is second to none. He was a master craftsman, whose music composers of all ages have attempted to emulate. The Sixteen has achieved an ebb and flow in their Palestrina recordings, allowing the music to breathe and to convey the real meaning of the words.

The Guardian
The performances are wonderfully alive ... warm and transparent.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2013
The Sixteen are at their best in jubliant passages of celebration...In some of the motets the singers make the most of the word painting: they skip along the running melodies at the word 'curremus' in Osculetur me osculo; and in Nigra sum the lines jostle each other out of the way at the reference to fighting.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2012
The Sixteen let the music speak for itself, as they say. Festive spirit is here more a matter of inner feeling than outward show, as the repose of the Credo's inner movements testifies...It is done with the ensemble's near-immaculate poise and onn this showing their Palestrina cycle will rival (but also, I hope, complement) the Tallis Scholars'.
