SPEM IN ALIUM
MASS & MOTETS
directed by Philip Cave
The acclaimed choir Magnificat performs one of the greatest masterpieces of the Renaissance, the 40-part motet Spem in alium by Thomas Tallis, along with a further selection of his works, including the Lamentations of Jeremiah and the beautifully crafted but little-known Mass for 4 Voices.
Ideal for multichannel Super Audio CD, the original CD recording was prepared with surround sound technology in mind, and now Linn Records is able to utilise the technological improvements to achieve the original goal. The CD has
been in much demand since stocks ran out.
This is quite the best performance of Tallis's 40-part Spem in alium that I have heard
it is a gripping realisation.
Linn's attention to detail in creating a
surround sound richness of texture is particularly praiseworthy.
