Reviews

'Never before has Spem in alium, Tallis's great 40-part motet, so closely resembled The Last Judgement as it does in this vast and awesome performance' (Gramophone)
O salutaris hostia sets a text used during Benediction and has a pre-Reformation scoring of SATBarB. Its style however firmly places it during the reigns of Mary or Elizabeth I and it exists in a number of printed sources.

from notes by Andrew Carwood © 2015

O salutaris hostia met en musique un texte utilisé pendant la bénédiction, avec une distribution d’avant la Réforme (SATBarB). Pourtant, son style l’ancre résolument dans les règnes de Marie ou d’Elisabeth Ire et il figure dans plusieurs sources imprimées.

Français: Hypérion

O salutaris hostia ist eine Vertonung eines Texts, der während der Benediktion verwendet wird, und sie hat eine vorreformatorische Besetzung von SATBarB. Aufgrund des Stils ist das Stück jedoch eindeutig während der Herrschaft entweder von Maria oder Elisabeth I. anzusiedeln und es ist in mehreren gedruckten Quellen überliefert.
