Thomas Tallis - The Complete Works - Vol. 4 - Music for the Divine Office - 1

Thomas Tallis - The Complete Works - Vol. 4 - Music for the Divine Office - 1
ID: SIGCD010
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Renaissance

This disc is the fourth in a series of nine covering the complete works of Thomas Tallis (c.1505-1585). Not for nothing is Tallis known as the "father of church music" - with his colleagues at the Chapel Royal he created most of the church music genres that we take for granted today.

Volumes 4 and 5 both focus on music written for the office hours - the daily services found mainly in the monasteries that eventually suffered at the hands of Henry VIII’s dissolution. Here we have a selection of hymns and Responds from the Henrician and Marian periods, each matched with their accompanying plainchant taken from contemporary sources.

When Sir Michael Tippett first worked with the BBC Singers in 1944, the experience was such that he recalled nearly 50 years later that "It was to be the first of many such occasions when a composer's dreams were brought to fulfillment."
Now under their Conductor Laureate, Stephen Cleobury, the present-day BBC Singers return the compliment with this programme of his works for choir, both unaccompanied and with organ.

Thomas Tallis: The Complete Works - Vol. 2 - Music at the Reformation

Thomas Tallis: The Complete Works - Vol. 2 - Music at the Reformation
ID: SIGCD002
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Choral Collection

This disc is the second in a series of nine covering the complete works of Thomas Tallis.
As the 1540s developed, the Reformation began to take hold and the style of music required from composers such as Tallis altered radically. The large-scale melismatic votive antiphons (for example those on disc 1) were no longer required; the emphasis moved away from Marian devotion to a more syllabic and compact style and, eventually, to settings of English rather than Latin texts. Disc two traces this development from the Jesus antiphon Sancte Deus, to the mass for four voices, the three early English anthems including If ye love me, the Te Deum for meanes and the Elizabethan Magnificat and Nunc dimittis.

The Daily Express, 15th September 2006
Will Todd's Mass In Blue is a curious yet beguiling work that blends jazz and classical choral singing to stunning effect. Although it's a bit odd hearing the Kyrie and Agnus Dei sounding like something that could be drifting out of a smoky speakeasy, once you get over the shock, it's an addictive listen.
