Perhaps at this point you might like a brief respite from all the Christmas music? How about the Tallis Scholars' February 2nd 1994 Palestrina 400th Anniversary Concert? It was held appropriately enough in St. Maria Maggiore the church where Palestrina began his education as a scholar and where he was also a choir boy. Palestrina was a prolific composer and this concert gives a good idea of the musical depth and balance of his works. If you've ever wondered why Palestrina's polyphonic style became the norm that was imitated for many years, or why even today there are classes that teach aspiring composers how to write counterpoint in the style of Palestrina the Tallis Scholars' flawless performance of this beautiful music will show you why. Enjoy :-).
