Format: Audio CD
--William Byrd--

William Byrd was a composer of grace and power. A staunch Catholic in an increasingly Protestant country, Byrd maintained his church loyalties at high cost. However, as a recognised genius at liturgical music, he had powerful admirers and friends, perhaps including Queen Elizabeth herself. Producing musical settings to Latin texts in a new-regime English-dominated church environment took courage. However, Byrd persevered all his life to produce music that remains timeless while being firmly rooted in its time.

--Ave Verum Corpus--

The Cambridge Singers named this collection after the 4-minute motet Ave Verum Corpus by Byrd. A motet is typically a choral composition sung at services other than masses (often at Vespers, although sometimes as anthem music). Byrd, together with Tallis (from whom this ensemble derives its name), was considered a master of the Flemish style of motet.

--Motets--

There are motets here for penitence and prayer, slow and somber sounding pieces. There are motets of praise and rejoicing, which have a very different energy and feel about them. Byrd did about 150 of these Latin settings, of which this collection contains 15. With regard to English Anthems, Byrd produced several dozen of these, and these were his best known works, the Latin-based pieces being overlooked in the new English, Protestant churches. Anthems were an English innovation to replace older, more Latin-Catholic elements in the services.

--Liner Notes--

The notes include an introduction to the CD with a generous biography of Byrd, a listing of the tracks with lyrics together with a brief paragraph about the history of the piece. Where lyrics are in Latin, an English translation is provided.

Worth the hassle and trauma of finding and purchasing. It was actually my wife who asked me to buy this on her behalf. and she asked me to say it was excellent.

There is much to like about this disc. The choir sings an interesting variety of Byrd's vocal works, and the singing is at a high level with excellent pitch control (not easy in many of these pieces) and great balance across the parts. There are several pieces (eg Plorans Plorabit) that are exceptionally well defined, whereas others come across as slightly one dimensional. Overall however a very worthwhile addition.

The structure of many pieces in this set can reach inner dimensions that might otherwise remain unaccessed. These songs act as a set of keys to environments within, where peace, empathy, clarity and purpose may be found and explored. More than a group of songs, it is a meditation, a testament to the power of human voices in harmony, reaching heights where the eternal in each of us is released and allowed to envelope us in warmth and the purest love.
