Cardinall's Musick, Andrew Carwood

TALLIS, T.: Salve intemerata

Following their multi-award-winning series of Byrd's Latin music, The Cardinall's Musick and Andrew Carwood continue their exploration of the sacred music of the acknowledged master of the Tudor era, Thomas Tallis. Tallis' career spans the reigns of four radically different and difficult monarchs, whose various attitudes to the religious questions of the day meant that each required different liturgies and different music to adorn them. Tallis excelled in every style, and this album contains examples of each, from the monumental Marian votive antiphon Salve intemerata virgo, to the modest English-texted settings of I call and cry to thee and Psalm translations by Elizabeth I's Archbishop, Matthew Parker.
