Palestrina: Missa Papae Marcelli / Allegri: Miserere

Palestrina: Missa Papae Marcelli / Allegri: Miserere by Westminster Abbey Choir
Released: May 1986
This recording glows with hugeness and warmth, providing endless space for the choir to make their perfect blend of Renaissance harmony. Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli was submitted as evidence of why music should still be important to Catholics at the Council of Trent, and Allegri's Miserere was so sacred it could not be written down (until Mozart copied it from memory after hearing it once).
