 Update me on new releases by Palestrina

Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (2/03/1525 - 2/02/1594)

Palestrina, his name derived from his probable place of birth, was one of the principal composers of the late 16th century, his style taken as a model by later generations. His musical language represents the climax of musical achievement of the period, above all in his mastery of earlier Franco-Flemish polyphonic techniques, which he used with complete assurance, particularly in the provision of music for the Catholic liturgy both before and after the reforming Council of Trent. Palestrina’s career was largely spent in Rome, at the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, the Cappella Giulia at St Peter’s, and at St John Lateran.
