0 Reviews
This selection of fourteen anthems and motets by the leading composer of Tudor England presents an interesting balance of established classics, slightly less familiar works, and unjustly neglected pieces appearing for the first time in practical editions. All are scrupulously-edited performing editions, with keyboard reductions, full apparatus criticus, and a general introduction setting the music in its historical context. All the pieces have texts suitable for general liturgical use by church and cathedral choirs and will also appeal to college, professional, and smaller amateur choruses as well.
