Notes & Reviews:

25 years ago, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars made their debut with this recording. To celebrate this milestone, Gimell offers this limited-edition budget priced reissue. "It is hard to think of a record label having had a more auspicious debut or one that so clearly forecast what was to come over the next decade, in terms of both repertory and performance quality. The performance already shows most of the qualities we associate with The Tallis Scholars: springy rhythms, marvellously bright and transparent textures in which all six voices are easily heard, fine tuning and - most important - a fluidity of tempo that keeps the music constantly alive." - Gramophone
