Mundy: Sacred Choral Music



Shipping time: Will not ship until 6/22/2018
Already celebrated in surveys of John Taverner and John Sheppard, the Choir of St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh now showcase the often overlooked music of William Mundy, which was at the heart of the Marian Catholic revival and then, just a few years later, made a vital contribution to the development of the Elizabethan motet. Their programme centers on Mundy's two most extended festal compositions, possibly sung to Queen Mary on the eve of her coronation in 1553 – the celebrated Vox patris caelestis and, newly reconstructed, the little-known Maria virgo sanctissima. Two further premiere recordings feature alongside the remarkable collaboration of Mundy, Sheppard and a young William Byrd on music for the Easter procession, In exitu Israel. Combining powerful music on a ceremonial scale with shorter liturgical works, this recording conveys the choir's sheer joy in their now firmly established role as ambassadors of sixteenth-century polyphony. Duncan Ferguson’s recordings on Delphian have attracted much critical acclaim. Single composer recordings of Sheppard, Bruckner and Gabriel Jackson were all Gramophone Editor’s Choices. A recording of Taverner’s music was International Record Review ‘album of the month’.
