Description

SDG 720 | 1 CD (13 tracks)

This album brings together six English composers whose combined careers span more than a century – Byrd, Tallis, Morley, Philips, White and Tomkins.

Monteverdi Choir
John Eliot Gardiner

The title Vigilate! (Be watchful!) epitomises the clandestine character of recusant music-making in Elizabethan England, by undercover Catholic composers of the time. The pieces on this recording display the richly imaginative, devout and diverse responses of musical craftsmen who worked with unfailing creativity in difficult times.

The album comes in our usual casebook packaging and contains a 36 pages booklet with notes by Kerry McCarthy and texts in German, English and French.

Recorded in London, June 2013
