    “A sublime blend of voices.” Gramophone

    “The Magnificat ensemble is stunning.” BBC Music Magazine

    “The performances are guaranteed to refresh even the most jaded palate.” Early Music Review
• This recording, the second celebrating the 450th anniversary of Rogierís birth, is a new collection of premiere recordings by the Renaissance composer, including the Missa Philippus Secundus Rex Hispaniae and a selection of Iberian Polyphony.

• Magnificat, who specialise in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries, received critical acclaim for its previous Rogier recording, which IRR described as “brilliantly realised” and “an excellent recording.”

• The lush textures and colours for which Rogier is renowned are highlighted by the singers and musicians, which include His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts, in this historically-informed performance that is bursting with vitality and energy.

• Directed by Philip Cave, Magnificat is one of the world's premier vocal ensembles.

• Previous recordings have been very successful: Thomas Tallis Spem in alium was hailed as “quite the best recording” by Gramophone Magazine and was First Choice in Building a Library on BBC Radio 3's CD Review.   In addition, its recording of Victoria's Officium Defunctorum was named Critics' Choice by Gramophone Magazine and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its 100 Essential Classical CDs.

• In association with Linn Records, Magnificat has undertaken many highly successful recording projects of music from “The Golden Age”, including works by Gesualdo, Guerrero, Josquin, Rebelo, Victoria, Allegri, Tallis, Rogier and Palestrina.
