BBC's Sacred Music Series - Pt 2 of 4 'Palestrina and the Popes'

Continuing this beautiful BBC documentary on sacred music, actor and former chorister Simon Russell Beale explores the sublime contribution of Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, "the Prince of Music" and the culmination of Renaissance polyphony.  Part 1 of this series can be seen here.  We will post the remaining two parts of this program over the next two Saturdays.
