This week's free download is the Kyrie from Benevolo's Missa Si Deus pro nobis, performed by Le Concert Spirituel and conducted by Hervé Niquet, recorded on the Alpha label. The recording was awarded five stars in the October issue of BBC Music Magazine.

This 17th-century choral work utilises eight choirs in 16 parts, which are placed around a congregation to create an illuminating, surround-sound experience. This particular recording was made in the church of Notre-Dame du Liban in Paris, and is the first ever recording of the piece. The choirs are accompanied by chamber organs, sackbuts and various stringed instruments. It is a very grand and atmospheric work. 

'Niquet does a heroic job in holding it all together', writes Paul Riley. 'Altogether, a wonderful disc of music fully deserving discovery. Bravo Benevolo - and his latter-day champions!'
