Notes & Reviews:

Undisputedly one of the world's greatest and most highly-esteemed choral conductors, the late Robert Shaw made his final complete recording for Telarc in late 1999. Left in the Telarc vaults were four sublime tracks of works sung by his a cappella ensemble, the Festival Singers, recorded in 1989 at the Robert Shaw choral festival in Quercy, France. These 15 minutes of glorious Tallis and Victoria appear on CD for the first time, along with compiled tracks from previous releases.
