By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 12 April 2008
This is a sublime group of recordings. Ludford was an English composer in the first half of the 16th Century and this is a box set of the four Cardinall's Musick discs of Ludford recorded 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 set. I got the original discs as they came out and well over 15 years later they still get played very regularly and give me immense pleasure. The opening bars of the Missa Lapidaverunt Stephanum still send a thrill up the back of my neck. As I write you can get the set for well under £20 and you won't regret a penny of it, I promise.

You might also be interested in The Cardinall's Music's set of Fayrfax Masses Robert Fayrfax: The Five Masses which are just as good.
