Download includes - cover art, inlay, booklet

'The Tudors at Prayer on Linn Records is both rich and gloriously textured, with the 24-bit / 192 khz download bringing out the full impact of the music.' Gramophone

4.5 stars 'The choir may be about the same size as the Sixteen, but the restrained, precise quality of Magnificat's singing has a flavor different from that of the Sixteen's recordings.' AllMusic.com

'This aurally luxuriant collection of Latin settings by five of the finest Tudor composers opens with a masterpiece of its age.' The Sunday Times

A highlight here is Mundy's towering Vox Patris caelestis; immensely vivid and colourful this is a powerful performance to challenge any that has gone before. Equally enthralling as Magnificat's critically acclaimed Spem in alium, but with even richer textures, Vox Patris caelestis perfectly demonstrates Magnificat's heaven-sent sound. Byrd's heartfelt setting of Tribue, Domine plus a premiere recording of White's Tota pulchra es, and his sublime psalm setting Domine, quis habitabit are further stand-out moments. 'The Tudors At Prayer' provides further evidence of the extraordinary richness of this centuries old repertoire.
