Reviews

'His performance meets the best standards of The Tallis Scholars, with every detail well controlled and everything clearly audible but at the same time a musical freedom that brings the music to life … the singers cope effortlessly with the chromatic complexities of the famous early Timor et tremor. Once again, then, The Tallis Scholars and the Gimell label have produced something spectacularly worthwhile' (Gramophone)
Lassus spent the best part of forty years in Munich, directing the chapel choir of the Dukes of Bavaria, and composing vast quantities of music for it to sing. This eight-voice Ave regina caelorum, one of five settings of this text by him, would have been performed at the end of the evening service of Compline in the period leading up to Holy Week.
