"There is more to these performances than mere beauty and that is anyway such a general word that one often tries to steer clear. But I can't help it - it is overwhelmingly the word that comes to mind when listening to these performances. The Hilliards evoke such gorgeous sonic landscapes, there is such delicate complexity in their tones, that this really is beauty of a rarefied order. Listen and luxuriate."

"One of the attractive things about one-to-a-part performances of this repertoire is that they recall the sound-world of the viol consort, especially when sung by an all-male ensemble. The Hilliards also have another trick up their sleeves - a special way of listening to each other that results not only in impeccable tuning and balance but in a shifting range of tone colours that never seems premeditated and yet is always apposite both to the music and the words. ...
This is yet another magnificent release from a fine vocal outfit whose diversity of repertoire and sheer longevity never cease to amaze."
(International Record Review)

After the enormous success of their recordings of the Bach Motets the Hilliard Ensemble turn their attention to English renaissance music and specifically works of three 16th century composers Thomas Tallis, Christopher Tye and John Sheppard. All three were masters of polyphony, associated with the Chapel Royal. Their works are alternated and contrasted throughout this composed recital. Tallis has long been an inspirational reference for the Hilliards, who recorded his "Lamentations of Jeremiah" for the New Series already in 1986, and brought his music into their collaboration with Jan Garbarek on "Mnemosyne".
