Notes & Reviews:
The Winchester Cathedral Choir released their first album of Tallis's choral music back in 1990. The recording has remained one of Hyperion's all-time best sellers. This second Tallis album contains more beautiful, inspirational music by the most influential English composer of his generation, as well as one of the most popular Renaissance composers of today. The Missa Salve intemerata is thought to be among the earliest of Tallis's surviving music and was probably written no later than 1530. The settings of the ordinary of the mass are here interspersed with votive antiphons by Tallis and Sarum chant. The sole source of the mass is a set of four out of five original part-books thought to have been compiled for Canterbury Cathedral at its refoundation in 1540.
