Full size album art
Label: CORO
Catalog: COR16014
Format: CD

Antonio Lotti (c.1667-1740): Crucifixus; Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525/6-1594): Stabat Mater Dolorosa; Gregorio Allegri (1582-1652): Miserere; Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-6-1594): Missa Papae Marcelli

The haunting tones of Allegri's Miserere are unique and instantly recognizable even to those who know little sacred choral music. Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli is certainly his best known work. Along with his Stabat Mater it combines exquisite contrapuntal poise with a translucent setting of the words, whereby music and text complement each other to the detriment of neither. The chromaticism and blossoming cadences of Lotti's eight part Crucifixus have made it a work loved by both choirs and listeners.
