O Crux Benedicta - Lent and Holy Week at the Sistine Chapel (CD)

Deutsche Grammophon
Current Stock:
Sistine Chapel Choir, Massimo Palombella

After Cantate Domino (2015), Palestrina (2016) and Veni Domine - Advent & Christmas at the Sistine Chapel (2017), O Crux Benedicta – Lent and Holy Week At The Sistine Chapel is the fourth installment of the unique collaboration between Deutsche Grammophon and the Vatican’s own Sistine Chapel Choir.
This series of state-of-the-art recordings by the Sistine Chapel Choir for Deutsche Grammophon makes an authoritative and profoundly beautiful case for the continuing relevance of Humanist, Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces in the Papal Celebrations of the 21st Century, and in the wider world. 

This album breathes new contemporary life into a precious tradition at the highest artistic level and transfers its listeners into a meditative, peaceful and conscious state.
