Magnificat & His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts/Philip Cave

Linn: CKD348 [June 2009, 73 mins]

Three premiere recordings of newly discovered works, celebrating the 450th anniversary of Rogier’s birth, this release is a combination of scholarship [Philip Cave: Philippe Rogier & Polychoral Music in the Spanish Golden Age] and a riot of sound, with up to 12 choral parts plus His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts,dulcian, lute, harp and organ ensuring variety.

Splendid music, sumptuously recorded by Linn, and supplied with full texts and translations.
