Product description

Product Description

Superlative performances of the Tallis Lamentations make this penultimate volume in The Cardinall's Musick cycle something rather special. Andrew Carwood's typically inspiring commentaries further enhance an album to savour.


Ten English composers set the Latin text of the Lamentations of Jeremiah in the mid-16th century, in the reigns both of the Catholic Queen Mary and the Protestant Elizabeth I. Precise details are hard to establish of when works were performed, as Andrew Carwood explains in an illuminating note to this disc, but there seems little doubt that Tallis, though a Catholic, wrote his masterpiece for Elizabeth. The repeated final lines, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, turn to the Lord your God , unforgettable once heard, have a dark resonance here, thanks to the sonorous basses of the Cardinall's Musick (Robert Macdonald, Simon Whiteley). The rest of this fine recording draws on music from across Tallis's career, with English and Latin settings (Sancte Deus, Te Deum, Come, Holy Ghost and more). The singers reach the highest standards. ***** --Observer,17/4/16

This final volume of Tallis from The Cardinall's Musick continues the fine form of its predecessors. Their interpretation of the English-texted works shows how effective these contrapuntally unassuming settings can be when sung with conviction. --Gramophone, May'16

By approaching Tallis with authority, the singers of The Cardinall's Musik illuminate his complex masterpieces. Performance *** Recording ***** BBC Music Magazine, June'16 /// The penultimate instalment in Andrew Carwood's Tallis survey maintains the very high standards of previous releases. --MusicWeb, June '16
