back in the day

palestrina knew how to write. the sounds of this album are extraordinary and satisfying. just the sound of the cathedral alone is enough to open up a space inside you hearing, but the way the lines move is stunning and always delightful. if you didn't believe in religion before listening, you might change your mind. even if you don't believe, you will have to admit that there is a kind of beauty that goes far beyond us.

That is not what I'm paying for. //Unsatisfied customer
