Few composers of the sixteenth century have attracted such myths about their output as Giovanni Pierluigi da
Palestrina. For many, Palestrina was the epitome of Roman Catholic music: ‘a genius whose works breathes divine
harmony, and enable us to sing in a style so truly sublime the praises of our Maker.’

With performances by the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, this recording concentrates on the offertories from
Advent Sunday to Trinity Sunday, taken from Offertoria totius anni secundum Sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae
consuetudinem, published in 1593. Palestrina’s reverence for the liturgical role of music is expressed throughout
his oeuvre and induces a sense of awe in the listener. These exquisite performances reveal the highly controlled
polyphony for which Palestrina is so famous. The motets epitomise his restrained compositional style, features of
which are the use of carefully prepared dissonance and discrete word painting.

The choir of Trinity College performs these absolute gems with conviction, integrity and tranquil beauty, making
the disc a welcome addition to the catalogue.
