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 English Motets, the debut album from the Gesualdo Six. Comprising works by Tallis, Byrd, and more, the record takes the listener on a journey through music of the English Reformation.
About the album (from the website of the Gesualdo Six)
During the renaissance, musical composition flourished, but it was a time of great change, fuelled by religious division. The Gesualdo Six's debut CD showcases the extraordinary journey composition took around the English Reformation, including works by Tallis, Byrd, Sheppard, Dunstable and Cornysh.
