Notes & Reviews:

Taking its title from a poem by 16th century Jesuit martyr Robert Southwell, Times go by Turns comprises three masses composed during a period when the conditions for English Catholics underwent radical change. New York Polyphony released its first collaboration with BIS in 2012 to international acclaim. For this disc the ensemble commissioned two modern works, with Andrew Smith contributing a Kyrie - the movement which Tallis' mass leaves out - and Gabriel Jackson providing the closing Ite missa est.

Early Music Today
The ensemble is at its best in the new music, which they sing with a stylish flair, and the more homophonic passages of Tallis, which they unfailingly imbue with direction and purpose.
