Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A superb selection of some of Renaissance master Palestrina's exquisitely transcendent music, sung to perfection by this 6-man a capella group. Very peaceful, restful, meditative, it's ideal background music for work or home, for any time of day or night. Sublimely beautiful--even moreso than Lionheart's Paris: 1200--with it's rich, shifting, gorgeous harmonies.

"With exquisite technique and loving care Lionheart recreates Palestrina's timeless perception of Rome's matchless soul. This CD takes me to a particular place of dream and mystical absorption, where the soul, freed from the gravity of daily activity, can discover its truest nature. These performances are not just aesthetic, not just aural. They educate, exercise, and comfort that deep component that accounts for our humanity. LIONHEART SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND THAT ART IS MORE THAN AN ENTERTAINMENT. IT OPENS A PORTAL THROUGH WHICH WE CAN FIND TRANSCENDENT LIFE," Thomas Moore, author of 'Care of the Soul.

Upon finding the above quotation I realized that it described perfectly the way I feel about Lionheart's recordings: they mesmerize me, enchant me and YES entertain me. They are really such all-encompassing musical performers. Composed of six male singers they have built an enviable reputation in the United States, performing mostly Early Music Concerts. With the attributes of sublime tone quality, flawless vocal blending, crystalline articulation and an emotional insight that is displayed in the weight that is given to each word meaning.

Though most of the selections on this disc are from Palestrina (1525-1594), there are two selections each by Costanzo Festa (1490-1545) and de Victoria (1548-1611). The notable singers are: Lawrence Lipnik,countertenor- Michael Ryan-Wenger & John Olund, tenors- Jeffrey Johnson & Richard Porterfield, baritones- Kurt-Owen Richards, bass. The singing is a cappella and I love it! THIS IS CERTAINLY A WELCOME ADDITION TO RENAISSANCE POLYPHONY!

The package includes a booklet with pertinent information and the text translation; all in English.
