This recording made in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel by its resident choir is devoted to music for Ash Wednesday and Holy Week. Presented in liturgical order, every piece in this compilation of chant and sublime settings by Palestrina, Lassus, Victoria, and other Renaissance masters was written for and is still performed in papal liturgies celebrated in the chapel. “The exciting partnership between the Sistine Chapel Choir and Deutsche Grammophon continues to deliver atmospheric and thought-provoking performances.” (Gramophone)
