Fresh from the triumphant conclusion of their Byrd Edition, the final volume of which is Gramophone magazine’s Record of the Year 2010, The Cardinall’s Musick explore some central canonic works of the Italian Renaissance. Palestrina’s immaculate counterpoint will be heard to mellifluous effect in the Mass and motet Assumpta est Maria while Allegri’s heart-stopping Miserere will remind many of Ash Wednesday broadcast services from St John’s College, Cambridge, in whose unique choir Andrew Carwood once sang.
