Gimell CDGIM 202 [CDx2] Christmas with the Tallis Scholars

This program is entirely plainchant, of chants current in England when such composers as Tye & Tallis were active.

The music recorded here is from the First Mass of Christmas according to the Salisbury Rite. The chant has been taken from printed sources, the Missal of 1531 and the Graduals of 1528 and 1532. The hymns have been borrowed from the 1st volume of the Sarum Hymnary.

Additional description by Sergey Lebedev.
