This review is from: Puer Natus Est: Tudor Music For Advent and Christmas (Stile Antico) (Audio CD)
This is a beautiful CD performed with clarity and vocal excellence that one has come to expect from this extraordinary choir. They seem to have a feel and empathy with the Tudor Music of Byrd and Tallis giving performances that never fail to impress. This disc does not, in my view , match the outstanding nature of " Heavenly Harmonies" but it is still a first class offering. It is not a disc for those seeking Christmas music of the more traditional kind- rather it is an esoteric jewel that rewards those who venture outwith those constraints with music of the highest order. The recording engineers deserve especial praise here - they and this choir are to be congratulated on their work.
