5.0 out of 5 stars Immaculate Performance., 3 Sept. 2011

(TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
The Sixteen and Harry Christophers confer class and professionalism to the point where it is difficult to be critical, so why bother? This is the first volume of an overdue representation of Palestrina's 16th century papal music. Renaissance polyphony delivered in the expert hands of Christphers and his Sixteen. Followers of their previous output will know that the level of performance is nothing less than outstanding. The framework is based upon 'The Assumption' and 'Song of Songs' alluding to the 'Virgin Mary'. The magnificent textural intertwining of the vocal instrumentalists are a mastery of the understanding of the participants in their fifteen poetic passages. This is a further luxurious addition to their choral output and more awaited. A majestic achievement.

The Sixteen re at the top of their class by a wide margin. This is perfect music to relax or meditate with. Shall have to save up for the other volumes. Pity they don't come as a discounted box set

5.0 out of 5 stars Palestrina, 31 Jan. 2012
The C.D. arrived very quickly and well within the estimated time scale, given it was Christmas time. The music is delightfully and recognisably Palestrina with The Sixteen adding their own unique and glorious style.

This CD is very good and I enjoy it 1 - 2 times a week. But it's not as catching as Vol 2.
