Product Description


Christopher Tye (c 1505-73) was a contemporary of Thomas Tallis, and while they shared similar career paths (Tallis to the Chapel Royal, Tye to Ely Cathedral) their music is often radically different, reflecting their characters. Tye was described as peevish, and it shows. The Gloria of his magnificent Missa Euge bone brings you up short with some startlingly grumpy gestures and intriguing harmonic shifts, but the dark clouds never last long the closing section of his glorious motet "Peccavimus cum patribus nostris", for instance, resolves in an explosion of dazzling polyphony. Westminster Abbey Choir are on brilliant form here, trebles crisp and alert and lay vicars forthright and muscular. --Observer,Sunday 22 April 2012

Alive at the same time as Thomas Tallis, Christopher Tye presents a more confrontational style, though he and Tallis were frowned on by Rome. They survived both Protestant and Catholic regimes in England.
The Westminster Choir is as usual stunning,as is the sound on this recording. Tye's wilful and compelling approach is obvious, the result of the Conductor, James O'Donnell, whose interpretation of the works is extremely faithful.
