'The new works are undoubtedly significant additions to the repertoire. On that count alone this recording is self-recommending. An even greater name among the new additions is that of Tallis … the predominant sonority is familiarly clear, transparent and assured … for the sake of the new pieces alone, lovers of this repertory will welcome this enthusiastically' (Gramophone)

'This is a beautifully conceived and exquisitely carried out program with much historical interest' (American Record Guide)

'You will never hear a more judiciously balanced, vocally better matched, nor technically more accomplished choral group than the 12-voice Brabant Ensemble. Founder/director Stephen Rice has assembled an exemplary company of voices aligned with repertoire that ideally suits the group's size and configuration. Combined with excellently recorded sound—from the Merton College Chapel venue favored by many choral ensembles—this production offers a program that's not only historically significant but that's worthy of repeated listening—intellectually involving, aesthetically pleasing, and emotionally engaging. How can you go wrong with that? Highly recommended!' (Classics Today)
The first music entered into the Chirk part-books was Tallis’s widely distributed ‘Dorian’ Service. Following the Creed is a short Offertory, a setting of one of the Communion Sentences, Not every one that saith unto me, which has survived only in the Chirk collection. It comprises just three musical phrases yet bears the distinctive stamp of Tallis’s chordal progressions.

La première musique entrée dans les parties séparées de Chirk fut le «Dorian» Service de Tallis, largement répandu. Le Credo y est suivi d’un court offertoire, qui met en musique l’une des Communion Sentences, Not every one that saith unto me, conservée dans le seul corpus de Chirk. Bien que limité à trois phrases musicales, il porte la griffe des progressions en accords de Tallis.

Français: Hypérion

Das erste Werk, das in die Stimmbücher von Chirk eingetragen wurde, ist der sogenannte „Dorische Gottesdienst“ von Tallis. Auf das Credo folgt ein kurzes Offertorium, eine Vertonung eines Kommunionssatzes, Not every one that saith unto me, die nur in der Chirk-Sammlung überliefert ist. Zwar kommen hier nur drei musikalische Phrasen vor, doch sind diese ganz deutlich mit dem Stempel von Tallis’ harmonischen Fortschreitungen versehen.

Y Gwasanaeth ‘Dorian’ eang ei ddosbarthiad o eiddo Tallis oedd y gerddoriaeth gyntaf i’w rhoi yn rhan-lyfrau’r Waun. Ar ôl y Credo, ceir ‘Offertory’ byr, sef gosodiad o un o Frawddegau’r Cymun, Not everyone that saith unto me, nad yw wedi goroesi ond yng nghasgliad y Waun. Er nad yw’n cynnwys ond tair brawddeg gerddorol, eto i gyd, mae stamp digamsyniol dilyniannau cordiol Tallis i’w clywed ynddo.
