Palestrina: Missa brevis

As we continue our perusal of the sacred repertoire of  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the greatest Italian composer of the 16th century, we sample his Missa brevis, a piece which is so named because of its shortness in length of time the voices sing.

This performance is  by Peter Phillips, conductor and the vocal group “Intrada” headed by Ekaterina Antonenko. It was performed at the Rachmaninov Hall, Moscow Conservatory, Moscow, Russia.

FromRome.Info features at 5 P.M. daily, Rome time, a selection of sacred music for the edification of our readers, so that they can better grasp how contrary to the very nature of Catholic liturgy were the so called “reforms” of Vatican II.
