Palestrina - Missa Nigra sum

The plainchant Nigra sum is followed by a motet from Jean Lhéritier that is based on the same melody and then by Palestrina's parody Mass based on the Lhéritier motet.  The album concludes with motets by Victoria and De Silva that are also based on the same plainchant melody. This analogue recording was made in the Chapel of Merton College, Oxford, in 1983.
