Reviews

'This is quite the best performance of Tallis's 40-part Spem in alium that I have heard. Sung by a constellation of singers, many of them familiar names from other well-established choral groups, it is a gripping realisation' (Gramophone)» More

'Fine voices and steady nerves always work in favour of Spem in alium … Magnificat's cast list is about as good as it gets' (BBC Music Magazine)» More
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.
