Choir & Organ
October 2002

These subtle, refined, almost lofty interpretations seem to come directly from the devotional heart of Tallis's choral hymns and responds. The singing is shapely and serene with a satisfying edge, and the recorded sound is generous without obscuring detail. The disc is completed by performances of liturgical organ music, played with style and sensitivity by Andrew Benson-Wilson on the historic instrument in the Chapel at Knole House, with the choir providing alternate verses of hymns such as Iste confessor.
