Reviews

Judge for youself
Not much variety of mood, but very well performed.

Historical footnote: Taverner, who occupies a large part of this disc, seems to have made his living mostly by organizing the rape, robbery, ravaging, pillaging, and murder of Catholics. All for the greater glory of God, of course, and a tidy profit to boot.

500 years later and it's still a bit much for my stomach. Since he's not getting residuals from the disc, let's hope he's getting his eternal reward.

Still in all, it's a reasonably good disc. Biggest problem, at this price point, no lyrics/translations and sparse notes. I do have Regis discs where all three have been included. So you never know.
