This CD is the second recording by Ars Nova Copenhagen featuring a Mass by John Taverner and a selection of works by composers from the same era – the first CD featured his Western Wind Mass. The main work here is Taverner’s Gloria tibi Trinitas Mass, one of the masterworks of Tudor church music, together with appropriate plainchants, hymn settings by White, Byrd and Tallis, and Fayrfax’s brilliant Magnificat Regale.

ARS NOVA Copenhagen is widely recognized as one of the finest vocal ensembles in Europe equally dedicated to early music and new music. Some programs explore the cross-currents between the two, while others form detailed portraits of individual composers or genres within a given period.

Another major project is in progress, with Dacapo Records, to record the five major narrative works by Heinrich Schütz – these will be released during 2009-11

BBC Music Magazine

February 2009

****

“The main work on this disc, Taverner's marvellous Glora tibi trinitas Mass composed c1526, was famous in its day as the source of the 'In Nomine' tune beloved of instrumental variations. The Mass's wide vocal range, exposed solo sections, subtle changes of time, and long phrases present challenges that are well met by these performers. Hillier keeps them on track with a lively pace (fastest of the available recordings) and is helped by some extremely pure female voices, and good tuning...”

Gramophone Magazine

July 2009

“Every work here is a masterpiece of its kind, and the "logic and propulsion" and rhythmic vigour… in Tavener's Mass are virtues that mark the 18 or so voices of Ars Nova throughout the recital, both severally and in concert. The acoustic of St Paul's Church, Copenhagen, is a reticent presence, in tune with the compelling sobriety of the whole enterprise.”
