COR16105 Palestrina Volume 2

Following the success of the first volume in their Palestrina series which won the International Classical Music Award for Early Music, Harry Christophers and The Sixteen release the second recording in the series.

Palestrina was born in 1525 not far from Rome, in the town whose name he bore and from which we take the cover images for this series of discs.

Each volume in the series is based around a single mass and theme relevant to that mass, in this case the Nativity and festive Motet and Mass Hodie Christus natus est. The mass features alongside some of his settings of the Song of Songs as well as the Magnificat Quinti toni and Motet O magnum mysterium.
