Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Record of the Year winners The Cardinall's Musick continue their exploration of Tallis's sacred music. These recordings not only showcase the greatest repertoire of the English Renaissance in dazzling performances, but also illustrate the complex historical and political background of the works and their genesis. This volume presents Tallis's extraordinary seven-voice mass, Missa Puer natus est nobis, which dates from the Catholic reign of Mary I. Other works recorded here include what is possibly Tallis's earliest work, the four-part Latin Magnificat, and the gloriously splendid Videte miraculum, a masterpiece with a rich palette of colors, enhanced by suave melodic writing with a slow-moving harmonic pulse tinged with heart-achingly gorgeous cadences.

The Observer, 16th March 2014
[The Mass is] sung here with customary perfection by the Cardinall's Musick, who polish other Tallis gems alongside it, most notablyVidete miraculum, a work of such sensuous beauty it quite eclipses the Mass.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
As one would expect from Andrew Carwood's experienced group, these performances are professional and musical. The chants are superbly sung, the pace is well judged if a little brisk, and the expressive dissonances glide perfectly together. The recording itself is very skilled and there is no hint of muddiness in the passages in low pitch.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
This recording is the second in the "Tallis Edition" by Andrew Carwood and The Cardinall's Musick issued by Hyperion (Jan/Feb). The program consists of a variety of liturgical genres. The principal work is the Mass Puer Natus Est Nobis. Carwood founded The Cardinall's Musick in 1989, and they are recognized as one of today's outstanding vocal ensembles for early music. In 2007 he was appointed director of music at St Paul's Cathedral in London.
