Tallis: Lamentations of Jeremiah / Musica Sacra

Notes & Reviews:

This recording brings together Tallis' two fine settings of the Lamentations of Jeremiah, and English adaptations of several of his best known Latin motets, including 'Sing and glorify heaven's high majesty' which is better known as Spem in alium - the huge 40-part motet that has become his most famous work. Adapting Latin texts to English became an important task during the 1550s, and the process became known as 'contrafactum'. Contrafacta survive in the output of many of Tallis's contemporaries, especially John Taverner.
