Nine voices with a distinctive lustre mark the quatercentenary of Guerrero’s death. Evocative Vespers psalms, part simple plainchant, part swathed in polyphony, contrast with Gothic arches of sustained sound in the restrained Requiem Mass. Deeply moving, though passion occasionally warps intonation. George Pratt
