These thoughtful renderings of Palestrina’s Offertoria vividly reflect their function in the liturgical calendar. Marlow’s choir highlights their remarkable expressive flexibility with deft contrasts (‘Terra tremuit’), haunting echoes (‘Deus, Deus meus’) and, in ‘Ascendit Deus’, infectious exultation.
