Andrew Carwood and The Cardinall’s Musick continue their series of recordings of choral music by Thomas Tallis. This latest release features his votive antiphons – devotional texts in honor of the Virgin, Christ, or the Saints used as additions to the daily office or for a special occasion. These settings are among the highlights of the composer’s evolving style which responded to the religious vicissitudes of the time.
