5.0 out of 5 stars Overall Excellence April 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Missa Papae Marcelli and Missa Aeterna Christi munera are both excellent.
The whole of the Pope Marcellus Mass is a model of artfully managed simplicity; it is a glorious sound -- the Kyrie and the Sanctus especially are wonderfully serene and ethereal.
The other Mass is fine, too; a bit more rythmic activity, something more of the jauntiness of the madrigal, than the monumental Pope Marcellus Mass, but all the same, a lovely piece, and well sung here.
The Oxford Camerata here have a lovely, warm sound, very nicely blended; there is excellent rhythm in the ensemble, as well.
The Stabat mater is an exquisite work, one of those unnecessarily well-kept secrets; a fantastic piece which is marvelously suited to Holy Week observances (he writes, in Eastertide ....)
The Allegri Miserere is beautiful, as well. I have both this, and the Tallis Scholars; I don't want to get into the "this one is better than the other" swamp ... they have somewhat different characters, much as two people have different tones of voice, and yet both voices may be perfectly pleasant. The high soprano in the figure which is the trademark of the Allegri, has good control; I have an idea that the corresponding singer in the Tallis Scholars recording may be a little "rounder," a little more covered in tone. But as I say, both are fine, and wondrously musical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! June 21, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Exquisite! The choir is resonant and beautifully blended, with a sweet line throughout the MISSA PAPAE MARCELLI. This recording is an ideal introduction to Italian Renaissance polyphony, as it was for me. Beautiful music, a nice combination of pieces, a ravishingly beautiful choir - and at this price, how can you go wrong? Hooray for Naxos!

4.0 out of 5 stars Listen to this if you're unfamiliar with Palestrina March 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This disc seems to be a great introduction to the music of Palestrina. Missa Papae Marcelli is definitely the highlight. The choral artistry is exquisite on this work and also on the Missa Aeterna Christi Munera. The Stabat Mater doesn't seem too bad, either. I have heard better recordings of Allegri's Miserere, however. Richard Marlow and the Cambridge Trinity College Choir do a fabulous job with this work on their double set entitled "Choral Moods."

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall well done. December 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've listened to more than one recording of Missa Papae Marcelli. This one is good, though not my favorite. The recording of the Missa Aeterna Christi Munera was also very beautiful and well done. The Stabat Mater was very beautiful. However, the thing that bugged me was when I got to the "Miserere". This is definitely not my favorite recording of the Miserere. It seemed too fast, that some of the sections rushed into eachother, like there was not enough echo in the room, and it didn't have any of the emotion of some other recordings I've heard. Maybe it's just me because I got used to a recording by someone else. However, for this price, it is nearly unbeatable. I still recommend this album, and give it an appropriate four stars.
