Exquisitely rendered by Stile Antico...
Stile Antico's latest disc celebrates the pioneering Tudor Church Music edition, which made available for the first time in the modern era much of the most important English Renaissance sacred music. Alongside Byrd's evergreen Mass for five voices, Stile Antico's varied programme includes masterpieces by Tallis, Taverner, White, Gibbons and Morley, all taken from the TCM volumes. This recording is supported by the Carnegie UK Trust, under whose aegis this remarkable edition appeared, in honour of its centenary in 2013.
