Girton College Choir to release new CD ‘Palestrina’

Palestrina - CD Cover

We are delighted to announce that the Girton College Choir have produced their third album for Toccata Classics. It was made just after they came back from touring Israel and Palestine last year. Featuring nine premiere recordings of music by Palestrina and Ingegneri, the Choir are accompanied by historic brass players from the Guildhall School and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. This was a very special recording project for the Choir, influenced by the life-changing experience of visiting the Holy Land and witnessing current events.

The new CD ‘Palestrina’ will be released on Friday 15 March, but you can pre-order it here:  https://toccataclassics.com/product/palestrina-missa-sine-nomine-a6/
