Schola Adventus, Palestrina For Eight Voices

Palestrina For Eight Voices by Schola Adventus features the FIRST EVER recording of the Italian Renaissance master's great "Missa Confitebor tibi, Domine" and a selection of eight-part motets Published in 1585, this remarkable work captures brilliantly all the contrasting "affects" of the mass text, from the reverential intimacy of the Et incarnatus est and Benedictus qui venit to the climactic breathlessness of Cum sancto Spirtu and Et vitam venturi and the dance-like ebullience of Hosanna in excelsis! Schola Adventus is the resident choir at Church of the Advent of Christ the King, San Francisco's historic Anglo-Catholic parish. There they have quickly established a reputation as the Bay Area's premier a cappella choral ensemble specializing in Gregorian Chant and Renaissance polyphony.
