William Byrd: Hereford Cathedral Choir GCCD 4048

Product Description

The new choral sound of Hereford focuses here on a special selection of the works of William Byrd, catholic composer in Tudor times, including two anthems in English, but mainly pieces from his famous Latin texts (Gradualia, Cantiones sacrae) and the Magnificat and nunc dimittis from two of his Services.

65:16

"...eventually they would have a choir who could sing with the splendour, intelligence and assurance we hear on this recital: surely on this showing, one of the country`s best...rare feeling chosen to illustrate different aspects of Byrd`s mastery...It is a superb record - the time has come to pay a long overdue second visit to Hereford."
John Steane - Gramophone, 31/01/2006
