Format: Audio CD
That's what I find on amazon when I enter "Palestrina" in the search box! Not all of those results turn out to be recordings of Palestrina's masses, but nonetheless there are oodles of CDs of performances by large choirs and small choirs -- King's College Choir, Westminster Cathedral Choir -- by amateur ensembles and professional ensembles of the stature of The Tallis Scholars and the Oxford Camerata. There's a full box - complete masses - by the venerable Pro Cantione Antiqua. And to be painfully blunt, they're all dull, dull, dull. Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594) is the most revered composer in the history of 'sacred' music; his virtual deification by the pundits of the Council of Trent determined that. But that reverence had become perfunctory within a century of his death. All his flawless counterpoint and liturgical propriety became a concrete coffin of solemnity.

I've given praise when praise was due to some of those plenteous recordings, but I confess that listening to them has been more duty than pleasure. But now, what to my wondering ears should appear but a Palestrina performance that I truly relish! And it isn't even new! This recording was made in 1995. There are eight singers listed for a mass 'a 5 voci' with support on a organ. The ensemble director Sergio Vartolo, an organist by training, asserts in his program notes that it his his view that "Palestrina's sacred music developed a madrigal style" which is "only possible with a small group of professional soloists and that with a large amateur choir." My own ears agree with that manifesto 100%, and I think this CD will convince others as well.

It's the performance that matters here. The 'Missa L'homme armé' is not typical of Palestrina's famous musical chastity and clarity.
