Byrd Mass for Five Voices (Herreweghe)

‘Philippe Herreweghe renews the power of Byrd’s masterpieces with sensual, intimate, moving, and very un-English performances. We have to lean in to hear what’s going on, as Herreweghe uses silence, and unexpected twists in dynamic and tempo to build intensity.’ – Berta Joncus
