After an extraordinary 40-year career, the four-man Hilliard Ensemble disbanded in 2014. This 6-CD collection focuses on eras central to their wide-ranging repertoire - the Renaissance and Early Baroque, with music from England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Mexico. As the Guardian wrote of the Hilliard Ensemble's farewell concert: "What came through consistently was how deeply entangled the four voices are, even while each singer retains his own individual tone. Blend and balance were instinctively, unerringly impeccable."
