Our rating 
5.0 out of 5 star rating 5.0

COMPOSERS: Byrd
LABELS: ASV Gaudeamus
WORKS: Cantiones sacrae 1575
PERFORMER: The Cardinall’s Musick/Andrew Carwood
CATALOGUE NO: CD GAU 197
The Cardinall’s Musick continues its survey of Byrd with a fourth volume containing the 1575 Cantiones sacrae. There are many outstandingly gifted singers in this ensemble but, though tonal individuality sometimes surfaces, a homogeneity of aural texture is nonetheless achieved with rewarding results.
