Sistine Chapel Choir releases album with Deutsche Grammophon
September 29, 2015
The Sistine Chapel Choir has released a new album, Cantate Domino, featuring works by Palestrina, Lassus, Victoria, and others.
The music—which includes two pieces of Gregorian chant and the world premiere recording of Allegri’s Miserere—was recorded in the Sistine Chapel itself, to capture the unique sound quality of that space. The album is produced by Deutsche Grammophon.
At a September 29 press conference announcing the collaborative effort, Mgr. Massimo Palombella, the director of the Sistine Chapel Choir, said: “My hope is that these musical masterpieces will reach millions of people throughout the world, bringing them into contact with the historical culture and profound spirituality of the Catholic Church.”
