Album information

Continuing its exploration of Tudor Latin sacred music, The Tudors At Prayer sees Magnificat perform music by Taverner, Tallis, Mundy, White and Byrd.

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.
