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 setting for double choir of Fratres ego enim accepi by Palestrina, a text commemorating the Last Supper was sung at Mass on Maundy Thursday at Vila Viçosa as Offertory. Palestrina’s motet is typical of the grand Roman polychoral style of the post-Tridentine era which had a profound effect on later Iberian composers of the counter-Reformation period. João IV had a keen interest in the music of Palestrina and, in defiance of earlier criticisms, defended his music in his treatise Respuestas (1654?).
