The first eight motets of the Cantones sacrae are magnificent pieces, the dark and sombre mood reflecting the torment of the Catholic minority in late Elizabethan England. I would recommend reading the very informative notes as they enhance the understanding and thus enjoyment of this wonderful music. The texts which Byrd chose and adapted are "politically / religiously loaded" and cannot be dissociated from the music itself. Highlights for me are track 4 "Tristitia et anxietas" and especially track 12 "Vide domine afflictionem" where music and text are perfectly aligned.
The Propers are short yet beautiful pieces written for private performance at a time when public Catholic worship was forbidden.
As with the other CDs in this series the performance is outstanding. The exquiste singing does justice to one of our greatest composers.

Had not previously hear much of his religious work, but enjoyed it immensely. Looking forward to more of William Byrd's work.
