Palestrina: Masses, Volume 3
Palestrina: Missa Regina caeli: Kyrie (4:53); Gloria (5:13); Credo (9:11)
The Sixteen / Harry Christophers
Conductor Harry Christophers and the British choral ensemble The Sixteen offer the third volume of works by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594), a towering figure in Renaissance polyphony. The disc explores music for the Easter season, and the central work is the Mass based on the plainchant Antiphon Regina caeli.
