Spem in Alium
With all our Heart


This recording of Spem in alium was made using ‘surround sound’. The forty voices were arranged to form four sides of a huge St-Chad cross: Choirs 1 & 2 to the West, 3 & 4 to the North, 5 & 6 to the East, and 7 & 8 to the South. The recording was made to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Tallis’s birth and the 21st birthday of Oxford Camerata — old members of Oxford
Read more Camerata met with their new counterparts for this performance of Tallis’s masterpiece.

"From time to time a disc comes across the desk that is so superior that you have to fish for criticisms...it is beautifully sung. Crystalline tone, superior enunciation and clarity of line make this one of the most memorable performances of a mass ordinary that I have ever heard...This is a complete winner... Buy it soon; it is a spiritual experience." -- Kevin Sutton, MusicWeb International, June 2005

"This is a very satisfying disc, which I enjoyed greatly. It's a very appropriate celebration of the significant contribution that Jeremy Summerly and Oxford Camerata have made to the success of the Naxos label...I'm very happy to recommend this fine disc in its own right but as an anniversary celebration it's doubly welcome. Ad multos annos to both Oxford Camerata and Naxos!"-- John Quinn, MusicWeb International, September 2005
