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 Cesar 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.
