Magnificat / Philip Cave

Magnificat delivers once again; 'Where late the sweet birds sang' is a gorgeous contrapuntal choral collection of works by three of the leading Elizabethan composers, featuring some of the repertoire's best singers.

Since the time of Byrd Westminster and Winchester Cathedrals have been renowned as two of England's finest choral cathedrals.

The choristers on this recording, from Westminster and Winchester, maintain that lineage, their voices blending seamlessly and naturally.

The recording was made in St. George's church in Chesterton, Cambridge which is of a similar scale to Waltham Abbey where Byrd was composing.

Byrd is increasingly recognised as a composer of great importance and 'Where late the sweet birds sang' will show that White and Parsons are equally exciting and deserving of renewed attention.

Magnificat are one of the world's premier vocal ensembles whose recordings have met with huge critical acclaim: Thomas Tallis'

Spem in alium was hailed as 'quite the best recording' by Gramophone Magazine and was First Choice in Building A Library on BBC Radio 3's CD Review. In addition their recording of Victoria's Officium Defunctorum was named Critics' Choice by Gramophone.

Magazine and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its 100 Essential Classical CDs.

Directed by Philip Cave, Magnificat specialises in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries.

In association with Linn Records, Magnificat has undertaken many highly successful recording projects of music from 'The Golden Age', including works by Gesualdo, Guerrero, Josquin, Rebelo, Victoria, Allegri, Tallis, Rogier and Palestrina.
