'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)
Sheppard’s Submit yourselves one to another is unassuming, yet imitative, and adopts the formal pattern ABB often used in early Anglican anthems for lower voices.

from notes by David Evans © 2009

Submit yourselves one to another de Sheppard, modeste mais imitatif, adopte la forme ABB si souvent utilisée dans les premiers anthems anglicans pour voix graves.

Français: Hypérion

Sheppards Submit yourselves one to another ist schlicht gehalten, aber imitativ angelegt. Hier kann man das formale Muster ABB erkennen, das häufig in anglikanischen Anthems für tiefere Stimmen vorkommt.
