Magnificat - The Tudors At Prayer - Pizzicato

19 June 2014
Remy Franck

Philip Cave und sein herausragendes Vokalensemble ‘Magnificat' bringen auf der CD ‘The Tudors at Prayer' Werke geistlicher Musik in lateinischer Sprache von John Tavener, Thomas Tallis, William Mundy, Robert White und William Byrd zu Gehör und überzeugen einmal mehr durch eine historisch authentische Aufbereitung der Musik. Doch der charismatische Chor mit seinen - bei aller Reinheit - warmen und kommunikativen Stimmen ist auch auf der gewonnenen Seite, wenn es darum geht, die schöne Musik der fünf Renaissance-Komponisten balsamisch zum Ausdruck zu bringen (Linn CKD 447).
