AllMusic Review by

Originally issued in 2004 but re-released in 2011 to coincide with a BBC4 documentary series, Renaissance: Music for Inner Peace is the Classical Brit Award-winning album from one of the world's most acclaimed vocal ensembles, the Sixteen. Conducted by founder Harry Christophers, it features 16 soothing renditions of pieces composed between the 14th and 17th centuries, such as Marian hymn "Salve Regina" and Allegri's "Miserere," as well as more contemporary numbers including John Taverner's "The Lamb," Barber's "Agnus Dei," and Górecki's "Totus Tuus."
