Renaissance polyphonic choral singing blossomed in Spain and the Low Countries, but especially in England in the 16th Century through master composers like Tallis, Byrd, Gibbons, and many more. A grand and beautiful selection of 21 pieces.

“This overall ravishing style of performance permeates all the pieces.” Peter Beavan – Choir & Organ
