Produktbeskrivelse

Gramophone Awards 2018 Shortlisted - Early Music

Nicholas Ludford’s music is by no means eclipsed by that of his more famous near contemporaries (who include Tallis and Taverner). That such wonderful works—virtually forgotten for nearly half a millennium—can once more be heard is cause for heartfelt gratitude.

James O’Donnell and the Westminster singers really understand this music and make a fine case for Ludford being a true (if neglected) master of polyphony. The disc kicks off with some serene, measured singing in the Kyrie…The Alleluia hardly puts a foot wrong in terms of the organic growth of the music. BBC ****

Having largely been the preserve of specialist vocal consorts it’s great to hear Ludford sung by the choir of Westminster Abbey…O’Donnell encourages really graceful long-arced phrases from his trebles…The finest singing on this disc…is undoubtedly Ave Maria, ancilla Trinitatis: an exceptional work and a superb performance. The choir are heard at their finest in the more impassioned moments, of which this votive antiphon offers many. Gramophone
