Mozart's charming Mass in C Major, K. 220, gets its "Sparrow" nickname from a distinctive "chirping" motive that appears in the Hosanna.

“A remarkable debut”: Praise for Lux Fulgebit, the Schola Cantorum's new CD

From the review by Fr. Jerome Weber in the September/October issue of Fanfare Magazine:

A remarkable debut...a must for anyone interested in Tudor polyphony and recommendable to anyone who cherishes the Latin Mass.

Lux Fulgebit also appeared in Early Music Review in May:

All the more surprising that, with the current flurry of interest in Peterhouse repertory, this is the premiere recording of Rasar’s mass. It is a revelation….glorious music and [a] committed and spiritual performance by the Schola.

Read more about this unique CD, which features the world premiere recording of a beautiful 16th-century Mass setting by a little-known contemporary of John Taverner. View FAQs on the history and context of the music, as well as the full liner notes.
