Info & track listings
This recording contributes to the tremendously exciting task of bringing back to light the riches of Portuguese musical culture in the 16th and 17th centuries, and is a companion to the Cambridge Taverners Choirs first disc (HAVP155). It does not attempt to reconstruct a particular occasion in a particular place. It does, however, try to give some sense of the manner in which polyphony was combined with organ music and with chant within liturgical performance.
The Cambridge Taverner Choir, founded in 1986, specialises in the performance of sacred polyphony in illuminating thematic, liturgical, and physical contexts, aiming to recreate the musical grandeur and excitement of the European Renaissance, especially the Tudor age in England and the Iberian Golden Age.
As well as its regular concert series in Cambridge, the choir has performed in many parts of the UK, and has undertaken highly successful tours of Portugal in 1991, and Switerland and Italy in 1996; it has also broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and has been featured on BBC Radio 4.
The choir has released three other recordings on the Herald label, Music from Renaissance Portugal (HAVP155) short-listed for the Gramophone Early Music Award in 1994), What is our life? (HAVP187), and The Song the Virgine Soong (HAVP252).
