O magnum mysterium (Motet)

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.
 

"...The Sixteen are almost beyond criticism—few groups have attained their standards of tonal opulence, technical facility, and projection, and this is no different. This will definitely be a series to collect, and the resonant acoustics of St. Alban the Martyr do the engineers proud."

Reinmar Emans - Fono Forum magazine - January 2013

 "The sound of The Sixteen is warm and blended, with almost impeccably sweet tuning, beautiful phrasing, and deep understanding of the music. The balance of voices is just right, so that the top line never obtrudes and all the partsare clearly audible ..."

Selene Mills - The Early Music Review 151 - December 2012


"... Superbly paced,effortlessly balanced and immaculately tuned, this is a lucious disc; the recorded sound is as opulent as the singing and the music. A lifetime of intellectual, artistic and emotional rewards awaits the lucky finder of this disc in the Christmas stocking, and those who have to go out and buy one can be assured that it most certainly is not a one-season wonder."
