About this release

Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina was a hugely prolific Renaissance composer. He became extremely famous and was in great demand in 16th-century Rome. Among his over 1000 mainly sacred works there are some 104 masses. They are set for four to eight a cappella vocal parts requiring no instrumental accompaniment.

Palestrina’s music has a graceful simplicity and warmth. His counterpoint even more so than Bach’s became an example to many apprentices. The composer, like many of his contemporaries, used the well-known 'L’Homme armé' tune more than once as a so-called cantus firmus – a basic melody - for his masses.

Performances by male singers of the well-known vocal Pro Cantione Antiqua, specializing in historically informed interpretations of early music, and including singers like Ian Partidge and Michael Chance.
