Votive Antiphons and Ritual Music

John Taverner (d. 1545) is, arguably, the most famous of all early Tudor composers, and one who had a rather colourful musical and political career. His music represents the final flowering of late medieval English polyphony before the onslaught of mid 16th-century Reformation. Much of the music on this recording centres around Taverner’s earlier career, including the three surviving large-scale Votive Antiphons. Included, too, is his sumptuous six-part Quemadmodum, which stylistically foreshadows true ’Renaissance’ composition in England. 

"...recommended to any lover of Renaissance choral music."

Brewer - American Record Guide - March/April 2012


"...Highly recommended."

J F Weber - Fanfare - March/April 2012


Performance ****      Recording ****

"...John Taverner’s Ave Dei or Gaude plurimum, exquisitely performed here, show just what an early 16th-century composer with a first rate musical imagination could do. The choir is very well directed by David Skinner who negotiates these expansive, arching structures with poise and insight..."

Anthony Pryer - BBC Music magazine  - January 2012
