5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Tudor polyphony 15 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
This four-disc series is a sublime group of recordings from the late 80s and early 90s. Ludford's music, despite his being virtually unheard-of, is astonishingly lovely, and The Cardinall's Musick sing it wonderfully. They are superb in this early Tudor repertoire: David Skinner's outstanding scholarship has produced excellent editions and Andrew Carwood brings out both the fabulous delicacy of the filigree textures in the high-voice parts and the wonderful sonority which is such a feature of English music of this period and the rich, resonant sound of the choir is ideal. The masses are performed with beautifully sung plainsong propers which set off the polyphonic movements perfectly.

It's a simply brilliant series. I got the original discs as they came out and over 20 years later they still get played very regularly and give me immense pleasure. I warmly recommend every one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious music from an unknown composer 13 Jun 2000
By Walter Knowles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like Tallis or Sheppard, you'll really enjoy Ludford. And as always, Carwood and Cardinall's Musick sound wonderful, clean, in tune, and stylistically right on in the polyphony. They are, however, somewhat afflicted with the English musicological affectation of wooden plainsong.
