Palestrina: Alma Redemptoris Mater

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 Alma Redemptoris Mater, a musical composition for the hymn of the Divine Office during Christmas seasons, which hails Our Lady as Mother of the Redeemer, a title She merited by Her Fiat on March 25, which is soon approaching..

This performance is  by the Tallis Scholars..

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.

 

One thought on “Palestrina: Alma Redemptoris Mater”

  1. Nothing in the V2 church can compare, nothing. Hearing this almost brings me to tears. I think of the time when all Catholics would kneel, fixating our eyes towards the tabernacle knowing that Christ was truly present in the Eucharist with hands folded awaiting His reception. Come Holy Spirit descend and reveal the truth to men.
