Simply titled “Palestrina”,  this new release by the world’s oldest choir – performed and recorded in the heart of the Catholic Church – features works by the most celebrated Italian musician of his time and reformer of church music:  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.
Recorded in  the year of the "Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy“ (8 December 2015 to 20 November 2016) - which Pope Francis has defined as “a revolution of tenderness and love” giving justice to the world – it is pure music carrying the essential message of divine generosity and care, selected by choir leader Massimo Palombella.
The Sistine Chapel Choir has developed greatly and the ensemble is now a proud and significant member of the DG family with much to celebrate and champion: a spiritual place to record the sound of the Vatican – the famous Sistine Chapel; special access for our guests and treasures from the Vatican libraries; three world premiere recordings; Palestrina’s most famous mass, based on the first printed edition from 1967, and two previously unreleased motets; and performers from a number of countries.
