Palestrina: Music for Advent and Christmas

Palestrina: Music for Advent and Christmas

Westminster Cathedral Choir, Martin Baker (conductor)


Martin Baker’s recordings of Palestrina with Westminster Cathedral Choir have been highly praised across the world, our favourite quote being ‘Palestrina’s mellifluous counterpoint resonates like whipped cream in the cathedral acoustics ... delicious’ (The Scotsman). Here is a further sumptuous recording of Palestrina, this time dedicated to Christmas, the main work being the stunning Missa Hodie Christus natus est—one of Palestrina’s most popular works.

What better way to encapsulate the spirit of Christmas than with works of such devotional beauty, all sung with Westminster Cathedral Choir’s customary finesse and atmospheric reverence.
