It doesn't get much more authentic than this! These eight CDs present music by William Byrd, Thomas Weelkes, Henry Purcell, John Blow, Matthew Locke, the little-known Pelham Humfrey, John Sheppard, and John Taverner--all recorded in Dorchester Abbey, Oxford, England, and sung by the Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford's great all-male choir. Their heritage goes back to Taverner himself. Their sound is both pure and lush, their singing immaculate. This is music in the finest English tradition, beautiful,
CD - St. John's College Choir, Cambridge ~ English Choral Music (new)
It is interesting to compare this Howells Requiem with that on Hyperion, where the Corydon Singers convey convincing but abstract grief with cool white tone and precise tuning. Here, the Finzi's warm tone and dynamic range seem more empathetic, pulling you into the agonized suspensions of the Requiem æternam and the comforting light of the final movement. The shorter works are all worthwhile, but two by Vaughan Williams stand out. A Vision of Aeroplanes sets an uncanny prophecy of Ezekiel; the whirling
Setting texts for chorus or solo songs occupied Samuel Barber throughout his creative life. In particular he sought out English and Irish writers, many of whose melancholic and nostalgic texts aptly matched his own musically romantic persuasion. A Stopwat

CD - Cambridge Singers ~ There is Sweet Music: English Choral Song 1890-1950 (new)
2008 release. Born in London circa 1540, William Byrd was the foremost composer of the Elizabethan age. A master of keyboard music and the madrigal as well as Latin and English church music, he was an organist and member of the sovereign's private religious establishment, the Chapel Royal. For many, Byrd's Masses represent the pinnacle of his work. Inspired in part by the archaic compositions of John Taverner, yet also admitting the influence of European composers such as Palestrina, they are dark, mystical
CD - Daniel Bara ~ Greater Love: The English Choral and Organ Tradition (new)
This historic classic from the Collegium catalog represented the first recorded survey of choral music by English composer Richard Rodney Bennett. Re-mixed and re-mastered for optimum quality, this highly anticipated re-release makes Sir Richard Rodney Bennett's music available to a new generation of listeners.
John Taverner brought the English florid style to its culmination; his music is quite unlike anything written by his continental contemporaries. In his debut recording with the critically acclaimed Edinburgh choir, Duncan Ferguson presents this music with forces akin to those of the sixteenth century - a small number of children and a larger number of men. The singers respond with an emotional authencity born of the daily round of liturgical performance.
