Palestrina - CD

Sistine Chapel Choir
Universal Canada
Availability: In Stock

"Palestrina", released by the world's oldest choir, is the perfect follow up to last year's Cantate Domino. It is performed and recorded in the heart of the Catholic Church, and featuring works by the most celebrated Italian musician of his time and reformer of church music: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.

Three world premiere recordings: Palestrina's most famous mass, based on the first printed edition from 1967, and two previously unreleased motets.

Recorded in this, the year of the "Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy" (8 December 2015 to 20 November 2016) which Pope Francis has defined as "a revolution of tenderness and love" giving justice to the world - it is pure music carrying the essential message of divine generosity and care, selected by choir leader Massimo Palombella.

DG has also recorded the brand new official Hymn for the Year of Mercy to support the ongoing message and theme of mercy.
