Puer natus est

The Yorkshire Post enjoys Puer natus est

David Denton, The Yorkshire Post (5 November, 2010)

Stile Antico, probably the finest Early Music vocal chamber group this country has ever produced, have devised a disc of “Tudor Music for Advent and Christmas” including Tallis’s magnificent seven-part Christmas Mass, Puer natus est. Their hallmark of sopranos that so bewitchingly drift on high, with the men forming the solid ground level, is ideal for this mix of music by Byrd, Taverner, White and Sheppard. They shape each piece with immaculate balance and refinement, a mood much helped by the recording engineers.
