Palestrina's son Iginio published his father's Missa Ave Maria posthumously
in 1594 in the Missae Quinqué, liber septimus. As its title suggests it's
derived from the Ave Maria prayer, the chant which appears regularly
throughout the Mass. It makes its first appearamce during the Kyrie --
giving it its very strong opening. The Mass has so many high points that
it's difficult to narrow them down. I find the long sustained meditation at
'Crufixus' to be one such high point, the vigorous and expansive Gloria has
a very moving 'Qui tollis', and the 'Bendictus' is very beautiful. This
performance by the Westminster Cathedral Choir conducted by James O'Donnell
was recorded in Westminster Cathedral between March 6th and March 9th 1989.
