Featuring five of The Sixteen’s most celebrated recordings, 'The Italian Collection' is a sumptuous anthology of music. From Allegri’s hauntingly beautiful Miserere to the virtuosity, vibrant colour and dynamic energy of Handel’s Dixit Dominus, this collection spans three centuries of glorious Italian choral music.

Little-know treasures such as Anerio’s glorious 12-part setting of the Stabat Mater sit side by side with Palestrina’s Assumpta Est Maria and Lotti’s Crucifixus. 14 different composers are represented here, and they worked for some of the most splendid musical establishments Italy had to offer, including St Mark’s in Venice and the Sistine Chapel in Rome.

A beautifully packaged set.
