About

A celebration of the Virgin Mary in sound and stone: following the success of its predecessor, ‘Music for the 100 Years’ War’, this release further explores the artistic parallels between music and alabaster sculpture in late medieval England.

Reviews

Sung with crystalline perfection, and recorded in the atmospheric surroundings of Ascot Priory, Berkshire, this sequence of Marian English polyphony introduces us to names, John Dunstaple aside, still not widely known: John Cooke, Walter Frye, John Bedyngham, John Plummer and more. The CD liner notes provide essays, several pictures of alabasters and all the texts. Listen and be transported.  Fiona Maddocks
