I am listening to this music right now and find it very beautifully sung. I have many recordings of early music, and I enjoy the alternative form of expression for these masses and motets. I very much enjoy the sound of the Italian all male choir, particularly its richness, flow, and intensity, and this is a recording where I find the organ adds to the singing. For a first choice in Palestrina, I would go for the Tallis Missa Assumpta or the Herreweghe Missa Viri Galileai. However, if you want a different approach to Palestrina, I would recommend this cd.
