The Great Mystery

Discover the mystery of Christmas threaded through this 60-minute sequence for voices, framed by Palestrina’s majestic double-choir mass and Magnificat. Motets that once rang through the Sistine Chapel. At the heart of the programme are Palestrina’s exquisite O magnum mysterium and a beautiful setting of the Inviolata, written by the Afro-Portuguese composer Vicente Lusitano in homage to his predecessor Josquin Des Prez.
