I Fagiolini Beats Bon Jovi, George Harrison, and Eminem
The world-premiere recording of Alessandro Striggio‘s “Mass in 40 Parts” (Decca) by I Fagiolini makes a noticeable splash in its debut on the British charts.
The recording by British vocal group I Fagiolini of the little-known Alessandro Striggio’s 1566 mass for 40 voices — most masses are written for four — made its debut at number 68 on the pop charts, above Bon Jovi, George Harrison and Eminem.
It was number two on the classical charts, just behind Dutch violinist waltz master Andre Rieu.
