Harry Christophers and the Sixteen are the epitome of choral polyphonic artistry. Their output is prodigious but the consistency of excellence is astonishing. This compilation of works by Tallis, Byrd and Sheppard is a continuance of the production of their interpretation of the master composers. The focus is on Tudor times; times of great change and difficulties for the creators of such marvellous music delivered by the best interpreters of the classic style, the Sixteen, under Christophers's direction. If you have the chance to see them live, please do so, they are a delight. This recording is, as their others, outstanding. It is difficult to fault or pick the outstanding from their repertoire. 'Laudibus in sanctis' and the extended 'Media vita in morte sumus' reveal why. Spread the word and the sound.
