'A magnificent collection. The Sixteen consistently convey the rapturous beauty of Sheppard's writing, above all in ethereal passages in the highest register. There are not many more beautiful records of Tudor polyphony than this' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)
From 1543 Sheppard was choirmaster at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he wrote an impressive body of mainly Latin church music. This simple, restrained setting of a Compline text would have been intended for Sheppard’s own choir, its top part probably sung by adult altos, the choristers presumably being in bed.
