The Tallis Fantasia was always going to be tough to beat, and indeed this recording doesn't...but it comes mighty close. Having first heard an extract from it via the, 'Life Story of V.W.' on the T.V. some months ago, I decided to go ahead and make the purchase. It's a delight from start to finish. Very English and with the very, V.W. depiction of rolling hills and green countryside to the fore. Highly recommended.
