5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful disc of a cappella music July 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is a collection of 19 motets, some of them taken from previously issued CDs (‘The Armed Man’, ‘The Peacemakers’ ‘Requiem’, ‘Stabat Mater’, ‘Adiemus’, ‘Gloria’, ‘Stella Natalis’) but in new a cappella arrangements and sung by Polyphony under the direction of Stephen Layton. The other tracks are of original recordings. I particularly like a cappella recordings as the purity of the human voice comes through without being obliterated in places by thick orchestral textures. If you enjoy this composer’s melodies and harmonies, you will love this CD. Polyphony make a beautiful sound and it’s refreshing to hear the different arrangements of pieces I already know quite well. It’s like hearing Barber’s Adagio in its choral setting for the first time.
