March 26th - Palestrina's Benedictus for Holy Week

A most wonderful composition perfectly capturing the mood of Tenebrae. His Miserere for Tenebrae is quite stunning too (see below), perhaps a shade or two less wonderful than the setting of the Benedictus but nevertheless a suitable piece to listen to and reflect on in the darkness at the end of the service.
