Reviews

'Indeed, the choir as a whole convey perfectly the ebb and flow of Sheppard's polyphony in performances as refreshing and calming as the effect of water cascading down the side of a lakeland fell. The overall balance is generally good (the full chords that mark the end of important sections are wonderfully resonant), the lower voices providing a solid—though not inexpressive—foundation for the soaring flights of fantasy above … the acoustic of the Norfolk church, now favoured by The Tallis Scholars for their recordings, is lively and clear, and contributes an aura of timelessness, especially to the chant … this is a record you will want to listen to again and again' (Gramophone)
Sheppard composed three short settings of this text, all for use in the evening service of Compline in the days leading up to Holy Week. This one, scored for four men’s voices, is the longest and probably the oldest. As usual in settings of this text, only some of the words are given polyphony; the rest are sung to plainchant.
