The Golden Age of Poliphony (The Sixteen)

FLAC tracks | Covers & Booklet | 2.63 Gb
10 CD | November 2009 | Hyperion
The Sixteen, Harry Christophers (conductor)
'English choral music at its finest: 11 hours 25 minutes of Tudor polyphony … from the superlative Sixteen, who have helped restore this music to the early music mainstream' (The Observer)
When The Sixteen embarked upon their recording career back in 1982, few would have been able to predict quite how successful they would become, or how far they would go towards rehabilitating the little-known and barely recorded music of these four master composers of the sixteenth century.
In this their 30th anniversary year, we join them in celebrating a Golden Age of Polyphony, and of music-making, by presenting their twelve discs of this repertoire in an attractively packaged (and priced) 10-CD remastered set.
I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
