      Palestrina: Veni Creator Spiritus (7:25)

      The Sixteen / Harry Christophers

      Harry Christophers and The Sixteen continue their exploration of Palestrina’s great works with the fifth disc in their celebrated series. This album features a selection of music for Pentecost including Missa Iam Christus astra ascenderat. Alongside the Mass are motets from the Song of Songs, containing some of Palestrina’s most sublime and expressive works. As Christophers writes in the foreward: “There is a wealth of word painting in which to indulge. Our aim has been to be sensitive to this wonderful poetry and inject an energy and beauty to our performances.”
