Album information

Magnificat features some of the country's leading consort singers. The fine acoustics of St. George's Church Chesterton provide a splendid backdrop for the seamless and natural blend of Magnificat's voices and the luminous glow of their performances.

Magnificat's recording offers an exploration into the choral works of three of Tudor England's most compelling composers: Robert Parsons, Robert White and William Byrd. As with previous Magnificat collections, years of meticulous study and consideration has gone into this recording; it represents the fruits of their personal journey through the works and history of these composers.

Magnificat has received many plaudits for the sensitivity and expressiveness of its performances, and this programme provides a wonderful opportunity to engage with music that is both challenging and rewarding to performers and listeners alike.
