Info for Palestrina

Some of you were in Rome last year to launch the first album ever to be recorded inside the Sistine chapel. Now Deutsche Grammophon is proud to announce the follow-up – giving a clear sign of the growing bond and collaboration between the label and the Vatican.

Simply titled “Palestrina”, it is a new release by the world’s oldest choir – performed and recorded in the heart of the Catholic Church, and featuring works by the most celebrated Italian musician of his time and reformer of church music: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.

Recorded in this, the year of the 'Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy“ (8 December 2015 to 20 November 2016) - which Pope Francis has defined as “a revolution of tenderness and love” giving justice to the world – it is pure music carrying the essential message of divine generosity and care, selected by choir leader Massimo Palombella.

DG has also recorded the brand new official Hymn for the Year of Mercy to support the on-going message and theme of mercy.

The Sistine Chapel Choir has developed greatly in this exclusive relationship and the ensemble is now a proud and significant member of the DG family with much to celebrate and champion: a spiritual place to record the sound of the Vatican – the famous Sistine Chapel; special access for our guests and treasures from the Vatican libraries: three world premiere recordings: Palestrina’s most famous mass, based on the first printed edition from 1967, and two previously unreleased motets.
