Artist:
The Binchois Consort, Andrew Kirkman

A celebration of the Virgin Mary in sound and stone: following the success of its predecessor, ‘Music for the 100 Years’ War’, this release further explores the artistic parallels between music and alabaster sculpture in late medieval England.

Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine

"Thankfully, the scholars have more sense than to draw precise parallels between any particular piece of music and a particular sculpture…the six adult male singers of The Binchois Consort under Andrew Kirkman perform on a very high qualitative level indeed. There are two excellent earlier recordings of Frye’s Mass Flos regalis but The Binchois Consort may well come closer than their predecessors to the true spirit of the work, particularly in terms of personnel and pacing"
