Notes & Reviews:

'The Crown of Thorns' embodies the sacrifice at the heart of the Passion story in reflections such as the 'Stabat Mater' text, a moving portrayal of the anguish of Christ's mother, unaware of the resurrection to come. The vast power of the royal courts of England and Scotland may be long gone, but the sumptuous sounds of their worship are not lost. This disc brings together music of some of the most outstanding but now little-known composers of the 15th and 16th centuries, and introduces a major new work by one of this century's most remarkable composers, James MacMillan.
