Palestrina: Vocal Works, Volume 3 – The Sixteen, Harry Christophers

A towering figure in Renaissance polyphony, Palestrina is arguably one of the greatest composers of liturgical music of all time. Harry Christophers and The Sixteen continue their exploration of his work with a download of music for the Easter period.

Many of the works on this new recording celebrate the joyful part of Easter – the Resurrection – and the central mass on the disc is the wonderfully inspired Missa Regina caeli. The Mass is based on the well-known, immediately recognisable, plainchant Antiphon Regina caeli and the recording also includes the eight-voice motet of the same name.

As do Volumes 1 and 2, this download includes three of Palestrina’s settings from the Song of Songs alongside three offertories for the Easter period, as well as the hymn Ad caenam agni providi.

The disc would not be complete, however, without the exquisite eight-voice Stabat Mater – possibly Palestrina’s most famous piece and a work that emphasises the other side of the Easter story: the agony and pain of the Crucifixion.



 "... The works chosen for this thrid disc in The Sixteen’s Palestrina series show the variety of his writing. Ad Cacenam agni providi contrasts plainchant with elaborate outworking of the chant in alternate verses; the three Song of Songs motets are intimate and sensuous; Regina caeli is full of life and hope. And the Regina caeli Mass is much more than a space-filler: it is marvellously sung, perhaps the finest performance on the disc."

Selene Mills - Early Music Review - August 2013


"... these recordings are on the highest level of musicianship and interpretation in this repertoire."

Brewer - American Record Guide - July/August 2013


"...I eagerly await the next disc in this series, which should become a valuable survey of Palestrina’s sacred music."

J F Weber - Fanfare - July/August 2013


"This programme on this superb release, the thrid in The Sixteen’s series devoted to the music of Palestrina, takes, like the previous two volumes, a single theme and a single Mass as its starting point..."
