Palestrina - Offertoria
Recorded 6-8 July 1999. Released November 2001.
“I am especially impressed with the choir’s ability to adapt its delivery to the specific style of the music performed… Marlow has clearly taken great pains to project the expressive content of the motets with a careful shaping of dynamic gestures and articulation…” – American Record Guide
Published the year before the composer’s death, Palestrina’s voluminous collection of antiphons for the church year is both a summation of the composer’s legendary craft and a Bach-like offering ‘soli deo gloria’. This recording, > originally issued on GMN and re-issued by Chandos under its Chaconne imprint, presents 25 of the Offertoria’s 68 works.
