Description

The grandeur of the Tudor Age is amply displayed in three brilliant settings of the Canticle of Mary, in Robert Parsons’ ground-breaking Great Service written shortly after the first Book of Common Prayer was completed in 1549. Three decades would pass before William Byrd would embark on his own Great Service, written during the first half of the 1580s. Another half century would pass before the last of the great generation of English composers before Purcell, Thomas Tomkins would proffer his own Great Service (c.1630) which is squarely in the Byrd tradition. The program also features a collection of grand motets spanning more than a century, beginning with a remarkably massive work from the Eton Choirbook.

Program:

Robert Parsons: Magnificat from The Great Service a 8; Holy Lord God Almighty a 5

William Byrd:  Magnificat from The Great Service a 10; Laetentur caeli a 5

Thomas Tomkins:  Magnificat from The Great Service a 10

Robert Wylkynson: Salve regina a 9 from the Eton Choirbook

John Sheppard: Aeterne rex altissime a 5
