Notes & Reviews:

Andrew Parrott and his Taverner Choir & Players turn to music of their namesake alongside works by his contemporary King Henry VIII, an exceptionally musical monarch, as well as two composers of the previous generation, William Cornysh and Hugh Ashton. With Taverner s Western Wind Mass as its cornerstone, this recording takes its lead from the unashamedly secular character of that work and ventures beyond the chapel door to explore the parallel world of courtly vernacular song and instrumental music.

Keen and dramatic ... technically brilliant. --BBC Music Magazine

Gramophone Magazine, May 2016
The Western Wynde Mass nicely contrasts with The Tallis Scholars' recording, being incisive and brisk where Peter Phillips's reading is smoother and more leisurely. Parrott is perhaps more persuasive in conveying its pacing...the sound recording successively juggles a wide range of distributions, from harpsichord to choir, with no apparent discontinuity.
