Ceremony and Devotion – The Sixteen, Harry ChristophersSixteenth-century England was a place of much religious change. It was a dangerous and confusing time as Henry VIII, who had split from Rome, was succeeded by his young son Edward VI, then by the ardent Catholic Mary Tudor, and finally by the Protestant Elizabeth I. Composers of the day, such as William Byrd, John Sheppard and Thomas Tallis, had to adapt to rapidly changing musical requirements and it is testament to their incredible skill and musical mastery that they produced such magnificent works in such troubled times. At the heart of this programme are Sheppard’s monumental Media vita in morte sumus and Byrd’s deeply personal setting of Infelix ego. Set amongst these exceptional masterpieces are Byrd’s joyful motets Laudibus in sanctis and Haec dies and, one of the gems of the recording, Tallis’s Miserere nostri.
