King’s Music – Alamire

Alamire won the British Library contract to record the soundtrack for its 2009 exhibition celebrating 500 years since the coronation of Henry VIII. Henry’s Music includes a world premiere recording of the contents of MS Royal 11.e.xi (a royal choirbook gifted to King Henry in 1516), which is to be produced in full-colour facsimile by the Folio Society, as well as tribute motets by Robert Fayrfax, Philippe Verdelot, and John Taverner. Alamire was joined by the cornett and sackbutt ensemble QuintEssential and the gothic harpist Andrew Lawerence-King.‘They sing, marrying galvanising spirit with impeccable tuning and blend… Nothing but this music can transport you to the indescribable warmth that must have greeted the new King… Awesome.’

CD of the Month (June 2009), Classic FM Magazine

‘[Alamire’s] measured and dignified style is wholly in touch with such an approach, which values introspection over spectacle. Their style is tempered yet enthusiastic, careful yet invigorating… it makes for a very satisfying listening experience.’
