"Recorded in the Sistine Chapel, this is the first studio project of its resident choir - the world's oldest - as well as the first such recording the Vatican has ever permitted in this hallowed venue. The Sistine Chapel Choir's liturgically organised programme of ethereal Gregorian chant and inspiring polyphonic settings by Palestrina, Lassus and Allegri (the original of his Miserere, as preserved in the Sistine Codex of 1661) fully reveals its unearthly beauty in the acoustical setting for which most of this music was conceived and where it was originally heard"--Container.
