Sistine Chapel Choir


Massimo Palombella


Introducing, by kind permission of the Vatican, the first studio album ever to be recorded in the Sistine Chapel. “Cantate Domino” opens the door to some of the world’s most beautiful choral music, as well as into one of the most treasured sacred locations on earth. The album features the Chapel’s resident choir – one of the longest-established choirs anywhere in the world.

Based at the heart of the Vatican, this unique musical institution has a rich history through the centuries, stretching back to the Middle Ages. Featuring music written for Popes, and this – his choir – across the centuries.

This is an album of musicological interest and importance, as well as one containing some of the most beautiful choral music ever written, including world premiere recordings and previously unpublished works and editions by Palestrina, Allegri & de Victoria.
