Tallis: Ave, Dei patris filia
& other sacred music
The Cardinall’s Musick has returned to the studio—or, more accurately, to the perpendical gothic marvel that is the Fitzalan Chapel of Arundel Castle—to record more of the Tudor masterpieces of Thomas Tallis. The programme includes three beautiful Latin Responsories, the early Votive Antiphon Ave, Dei patris filia, and the Morning Canticles of the ‘Dorian’ Service.
“The sprawling majesty of Thomas Tallis’s Ave, Dei patris filia is brought to startling life here by both the fine voices of the Cardinall’s Musick and the scholarly detective work of David Allinson...Canticles, responses, Te Deum and the Litany are all sung with an almost string-like quality of tone and perfect unanimity.” The Guardian, 16th August 2015 ****

The Tallis Scholars sing Thomas Tallis
“The Tallis Scholars produce a distilled, transparent sound and the spiritual tone of their performance is one of serene contemplation through which the Requiem's ecstatic 'external light' shines.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2005 *****

Tallis: The Canterbury Years
“Listening to this recording we can imagine their initial impact. David Flood has wisely chosen the nave, rather than the chancel, as the best place in the cathedral to position his choir so that the full power and beauty of the music can be appreciated. And powerful it certainly is, the choristers deserve to be congratulated” Gramophone Magazine
