Gramophone Record of the Year winners The Cardinall’s Musick continue their exploration of Tallis’s sacred music. These recordings not only showcase the greatest repertoire of the English Renaissance in dazzling performances, but also illustrate the complex historical and political background of the works and their genesis. This volume presents Tallis’s extraordinary seven-voice mass, Missa Puer natus est nobis, which dates from the Catholic reign of Mary I. Other works recorded here include what is possibly Tallis’s earliest work, the four-part Latin Magnificat, and the gloriously splendid Videte miraculum, a masterpiece with a rich palette of colors, enhanced by suave melodic writing with a slow-moving harmonic pulse tinged with heart-achingly gorgeous cadences.
