A highlight here is Mundy's towering Vox Patris caelestis; immensely vivid and colourful this is a powerful performance to challenge any that has gone before. Equally enthralling as Magnificat's critically acclaimed Spem in alium, but with even richer textures, Vox Patris caelestis perfectly demonstrates Magnificat's heaven-sent sound. Byrd's heartfelt setting of Tribue, Domine plus a premiere recording of White's Tota pulchra es, and his sublime psalm setting Domine, quis habitabit are further stand-out moments. 'The Tudors At Prayer' provides further evidence of the extraordinary richness of this centuries old repertoire.
