Choral sacred music includes works written for performance during religious services or on solemn occasions. Before the Baroque period, most sacred choral music works were performed ‘a capella’, which means without instrumental or orchestral accompaniment. Subsequently, orchestral accompaniment became the norm. The most common forms of sacred choral music are masses, cantatas and oratorios. Among the most famous choral sacred works are the Requiem Masses of Mozart, Fauré and Verdi.

User's Review: A hidden treasure  I downloaded this work after listening to the 30-second previews, and it is surely a hidden treasure among most of the current classical music one 'endures' (though there are honourable exceptions - Part or Rutter anyone?). What is striking about this recording is the sheer accessibility of the music, in many respects resembling a sort of classical chill-out. Particular highlights for me were the Dark Night of the Soul, which sounds anything but Dark, and Pulchra es amica mea, which grabs the attention with haunting hooks, almost like a pop song. The performances and sound quality are first-rate. More please.
