Notes & Reviews:

The Renaissance is well known for its cultural giants. Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and above all Michelangelo epitomize a period where the human spirit seemed to grow and gain in confidence. This new collection from Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars celebrates the musical geniuses who contributed to this astonishing period in European history. Works in this collection include 'Spem in alium' by Thomas Tallis, the 'Western Wind Mass' of John Taverner, the 'Missa Pange lingua' by Josquin, Palestrina's 'Missa Brevis,' Byrd's 'Mass' for four voices and the 'Requiem' of Tomas Luis Victoria.
