Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli

Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli was written for the election of Pope Marcellus II, and has gone down in history for its connection to the Council of Trent for though it may have been written several years before the council met. We'll hear a splendid performance of this cornerstone of sacred music featuring New York Polyphony, from their 2016 release Roma Aeterna.
