Palestrina: Volume 1 – The Sixteen, Harry Christophers

Arguably the greatest composer of liturgical music of all time, Palestrina was a towering figure in Renaissance polyphony. On this disc The Sixteen explores some of the outstanding music he wrote for the Assumption, including the Motet Assumpta est Maria and the Mass based on it. Palestrina is often regarded as the great master of all Papal composers and his spiritual craft and harmonic vitality fulfilled the needs of the Vatican. The Ave Maria and Salve Regina, and the Offertory Assumpta est Maria, are glorious examples of his work and on this recording can be heard in all their splendour.

                       *****   Exceptional

Claudio Bolzan - Musica magazine - September 2011


"A potentially monumental Palestrina project gets off to a promising start."

Fabrice Fitch - Gramophone magazine - October 2011


"... an auspicious start to what one hopes will be a long-running series, and yet another jewel in the crown of an already glittering discography from this fine choir."

Robert Levett - International Record Review -  September 2011


                       ’Editor’s Choice’

"The abstract beauty of the singers’ approach to the Missa Assumpta Est Maria and the breathless beauty of Song of Songs shows The Sixteen’s adaptability and resourcefulness. Another tick in their box - the naturalistic sound quality which avoices the contrived ’other-worldy’ quality that plagues lesser early music recordings."  *****

Philip Clark - Classic FM Magazine - September 2011


                               Performance ****           Recording ****

"... the imaginative variety of these performances bodes well for the future volumes in this series."

Anthony Pryer - BBC Music magazine - September 2011


"The Sixteen and Harry Christophers launch the first volume of a long-term Palestrina project, using their instincts to convey not just the mellifluous perfection of Palestrina’s polyphonic vocal writing but also the music’s expressive import. Most of the works relate to the Assumption, but settings from The Song of Songs attest to Palestrina’s more worldly leanings. All are performed exquisitely."  ****
