Reviews

'In its entirety this disc is a sublime tribute both to one of England's greatest composers, and to the skill and conviction of one of today's finest ensembles' (Gramophone)

'This superbly sung selection of some of his finest Latin church music will surely prove to be one of Tallis's very best 500th birthday presents. It is hard to imagine a better performance of the magnificent six-part votive antiphon Gaude gloriosa' (The Daily Telegraph)

'This is the first manifestation of the new exclusive contract between Hyperion and the Cardinall's Musick. With Andrew Carwood's scholarly approach to Tudor music, coupled with the individual excellence of each of his singers and the superlative production values of Hyperion, I suspect this is going to be a very fruitful collaboration' (International Record Review)

'This is a highlight of the Tallis year' (Fanfare, USA)

'This marvellously full-throated performance can stand comparison with any … throughout, the performances maintain the high level The Cardinall's Musick have consistently displayed in their Byrd series, being beautifully tuned and balanced … a strong 5-star recommendation' (Goldberg)
Mihi autem nimis sets the antiphon of the Introit for the Feast of Apostles in a quiet, devotional way. Many of these pieces in the 1575 collection could well have been used in domestic settings as well as for the liturgy. Latin remained the usual language of law, diplomacy and education and would have been perfectly acceptable in an institution like the Chapel Royal or as part of a domestic ‘spiritual entertainment’.

from notes by Andrew Carwood © 2005

Mihi autem nimis est une mise en musique paisible et dévotionnelle de l’antienne de l’Introït pour la fête des Apôtres. Nombre des pièces du recueil de 1575 ont fort bien pu être utilisées dans des mises en musique à usage soit privé soit liturgique. Le latin, qui demeurait la langue usuelle du droit, de la diplomatie et de l’enseignement, eût été parfaitement acceptable dans une institution comme la Chapel Royal ou dans le cadre d’un «divertissement spirituel» privé.

extrait des notes rédigées par Andrew Carwood © 2005
Français: Hypérion

Mihi autem nimis ist eine ruhige, andächtige Antiphon des Introitus zum Fest der Apostel. Viele der Stücke aus der Sammlung von 1575 sind ebenso für den häuslichen als auch für den liturgischen Gebrauch denkbar. Das Lateinische blieb die Sprache des Gesetzes, der Diplomaten und der Bildung und wäre in einer Institution wie der Chapel Royal oder auch im Rahmen häuslicher „religiöser Zerstreuung“ durchaus denkbar gewesen.
