Hear selections from new releases with our weekly Choral Featured Album Fridays at 11 a.m. central on the Choral Stream.
For this week's Choral Featured Album, we present the new release from Alamire, "Thomas Tallis: Queen Katherine Parr & Songs of Reformation." Comprising 13 tracks, the program includes a variety of the English composer's works including "If Ye Love Me," "O Sacrum Convivium," and "Hear the Voice and Prayer." Additionally, the album presents the first recording of an early version of Tallis' six-part "Gaude gloriosa dei mater" with words by Queen Katherine Parr, the last wife of Henry VIII.
