Tallis: Latin Church Music
“[In Spem in alium] Parrott's sure touch tells in the form: the first entry is clear and confident...the first Mexican wave spreads inexorably, the arrival on the second tutti rings out like a clarion-call, the antiphonal section doesn't flag, the initial 'Respice' is solemn and arresting, and the final tutti gloriously full-bodied.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2010

Vocal ensemble Stile Antico made its harmonia mundi début with this programme of 16th- and 17th-century polyphony written by some of England's greatest composers for the office of Compline, last of the daily hours and a form of night prayer.
It went on to become one of the year's best sellers and achieved worldwide critical acclaim.
“This outstanding release … features absolutely ravishing performances by Stile Antico… This is an extraordinary recording: In its debut on Harmonia Mundi Stile Antico has given choral music lovers everywhere a reason to
celebrate what looks like the beginning of another beautiful relationship!” Classics Today 10/10
“Debut recordings rarely come as impressive as this sequence of 16th-century English music for the evening service that concluded the daily monastic round of prayer. It suggests that Stile Antico have a future as
bright as their pure and crystalline soprano sound, which is heard to special advantage in the pieces by John Sheppard, the most lavishly represented composer on the disc.” The Telegraph
“The singing is staggeringly beautiful, the balance meticulous.” Sunday Times
