Notes & Reviews:

Originally released on the Classics for Pleasure label, the issuing of this CD will mark the first time these tracks have been commercially available for over 20 years. The twelve works presented here were deliberately chosen to show off the scope of the best English madrigal writing from around the year 1600. This unique album, the only recording by The Tallis Scholars of English Madrigals and their first-ever digital recording, was made in the Great Hall at Deene Park, Northamptonshire in 1982. The album includes seven previously unreleased bonus tracks featuring anthems & sacred madrigals by Thomas Tomkins, recorded in Salle Church, Norfolk in 1988.
