Compact disc

SKU: HAVPCD277 Categories: ,


Mass for the 16th Sunday after Pentecost, in Lisbon Cathedral.

Cambridge Taverner Choir

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 Taverner’s Choir’s first disc (Herald HAVP155). It does not attempt to ‘reconstruct’ a particular occasion in a particular place. It does, however, try to give some sense of the way polyphony was combined with organ music and with chant within liturgical performance.
