Reviews

'Stunningly beautiful' (Organists' Review)

'Disco absolutamente recomendable a todos los amigos de la polifonia, qie se encontraran con 73 minutos de buena musica bellamente interpretada' (CD Compact, Spain)
The texts of the musical items for the distribution of the palms and the procession commemorate Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem amid the cries of the multitude and the Hebrew children (‘Pueri hebraeorum’) going before and after him, cutting off branches from the trees and strewing them in his way, spreading garments on the road and repeatedly crying ‘Hosanna to the son of David’ and ‘Hosanna in the highest’.

from notes by Bernadette Nelson 1996
