Product description

Product Description

Continuing its exploration of Tudor Latin sacred music, The Tudors At Prayer sees Magnificat perform music by Taverner, Tallis, Mundy, White and Byrd.
The highlight is Mundys towering Vox Patris caelestis; immensely vivid and colourful this is a powerful performance to challenge any that has gone before. Equally enthralling as Magnificats critically acclaimed Spem in alium, but with even richer textures, Vox Patris caelestis perfectly demonstrates Magnificats heaven-sent sound.
Byrds heartfelt setting of Tribue, Domine plus a premiere recording of Whites Tota pulchra es, and his sublime psalm setting Domine, quis habitabit are further stand-out moments.
The Tudors At Prayer provides further evidence of the extraordinary richness of this centuries old repertoire.
Magnificat is one of the worlds premier vocal ensembles whose recordings have met with huge critical acclaim: Spem in alium was hailed as quite the best performance of Tallis's 40-part Spem in alium that I have heard' by Gramophone and was First Choice in Building A Library on BBC Radio 3's CD Review. In addition Victorias Officium Defunctorum was named Critics Choice by Gramophone and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its 100 Essential Classical CDs.
Directed by Philip Cave, Magnificat specialises in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries.
In association with Linn Records, Magnificat has undertaken many highly successful recording projects of music from The Golden Age, including works by Gesualdo, Guerrero, des Prez, Rebelo, Victoria, Allegri, Tallis and Da Palestrina, as well as Latin sacred music by Robert Parsons, Robert White and William Byrd and two recordings to commemorate the 450th anniversary of composer Philippe Rogier.

Review

You heard the vocal ensemble Magnificat really relishing those suspensions and false relations, all of those delicious chromatic harmonies. And they give a fine account of Mundy's most famous setting from the song of songs, Vox Patris Caelestis, and guide us through this well-chosen selection of mid 16th Century English music with commendable security of intonation and beauty of tone, matched by the recording. --Andrew McGregor, BBC R3: CD Review

This aurally luxuriant collection of Latin settings by five of the finest Tudor composers opens with a masterpiece of its age,William Mundy's vast,ornate and infinitely texturally varied Vox patris caelestis,written in Mary's reign,but resurrecting the pre-Reformation votive antiphon tradition.The singers of Magnificat are acutely responsive to this architecture.At the end comes William Byrd's great 1575 motet Tribue Domine. --Stephen Pettit - Sunday Times
