A treasure-trove of outstanding motets, including works by Bach, Buxtehude, Gabrieli, Ges­­­­ualdo, Monteverdi, Palestrina, Schütz and Sweelinck. All performed in glorious new recordings from the Cambridge Singers at their sensuous and virtuosic best, joined here on disc for the first time by the acclaimed early music ensemble La Nuova Musica.
