The inspiring and uplifting sacred music of the late 16th century defines ‘Europe's Golden Age', and Magnificat captures that spirit with its very special golden choral sound. There are contributions from the great polyphonists des Prez, Lassus and Victoria, as
well as a selection of other exquisite works by Guerrero and Rebelo. Familiar gems such as Palestrina's Stabat mater and Allegri's Miserere mei, with appropriate vocal ornamentation and great sensitivity to the texts, complete Magnificat's stunning debut.
