I love a lot of different kinds of music, from bebop via hardcore punk, classic rock and various kinds of traditional music to Beethoven and Bach, but for some reason Tudor church music nearly always does it for me. This is a frankly stellar recording of a great ensemble singing some astonishing music. On the evidence of 'Media Vita' alone, Sheppard deserves to be more listened to. I fully agree with the other reviewer; the Tallis Scholars' recording of this music compels attention, and I'm talking about serious attention. A beautiful album that deserves to be in your collection.
