About this Recording

Sacred Music - TALLIS, T. / ALLEGRI, G. / PERGOLESI, G.B. / MOZART, W.A. (Favourite Sacred Masterpieces) (Summerly, Halasz, Wildner, Kovacs)

Some of the world’s greatest sacred masterpieces are heard on this disc, performed by some of the world’s leading vocal ensembles. The journey ranges from Thomas Tallis’s extraordinary Spem in alium to César Franck’s immortal Panis angelicus. Pergolesi’s Stabat mater is a masterpiece of the early eighteenth century. Mozart, who as a 14-year-old had copied out Allegri’s Miserere from memory, is represented by his beautiful Ave verum corpus. It is impossible to omit the Bach-Gounod Ave Maria from a journey that crosses geographical borders and spans the centuries.
