Notes & Reviews:

The music of British composer Edmund Rubbra (1901-1986) has an unmistakable style. His sense of tonality, his frequent use of counterpoint, and his clever melodies set his works apart from those of his contemporaries. While he is most remembered for his orchestral compositions, Rubbra also wrote choral music consistently throughout his career. For this release, The Sixteen explores some of Rubbra's lesser-known choral works such as his Tenebrae Nocturns and his Missa Cantuariensis. "... exceptional works by Edmund Rubbra... The performances are beautiful and brilliant." (New York Times)
