The Cardinall's Musick's thrilling exploration of Tallis' sacred music comes to a glorious close with both versions of the great forty-part motet: 'Spem in alium' itself and 'Sing and glorify', the less familiar English-texted contrafactum.
"Carwood moulds the structures to great effect, with wide ranging dynamics from hushed groupings of eight voices to the full force." Five Stars BBC Music
"This final volume maintains to the last the exceptionally high standards of the series. That applies to the performances, the recorded sound and the documentation. I hope it goes without saying that the remark applies particularly to the calibre of the music. This is the end of a highly distinguished contribution to the discography of this great Tudor master. Following the series has been an enriching experience." (MusicWeb Jan 2017)
"The end of a highly distinguished contribution to the discography of Thomas Tallis." MusicWeb
