Great Tudor Anthems GCCD 4053

Product Description: From Worcester Cathdral Choir directed by Donald Hunt – The greatest & perhaps the most precious anachronism is the continuing tradition of the cathedral choirs…it tells of a civilization utterly different from the one we seem to be preparing for the 21st century. The mastery of our Tudor composers in their choral writing tells of a rich culture, in which the cathedrals were very near the centre; & the mastery is splendidly preserved by choirs like Worcester Cathedral…it is amazing & marvellous to find (them) flourishing as vigorously as this one so clearly is. Total time: 75:05

“…So the chance this well performed and generously filled CD gives to look at Tudor anthems in general is welcome….these are all hearteningly committed performances. What also comes across powerfully is a sense of tradition because of the location, forces and manner of performance.” Michael Greenhalgh – MusicWeb International, 16/02/2007
