Notes and Editorial Reviews

Nicholas Ludford's music is by no means eclipsed by that of his more famous near contemporaries like Tallis and Taverner. Virtually forgotten for nearly half a millennium, James O'Donnell and the Westminster Abbey Choir's performance of these works is cause for heartfelt gratitude.

REVIEW:

Having largely been the preserve of specialist vocal consorts it’s great to hear Ludford sung by the choir of Westminster Abbey. O’Donnell encourages really graceful long-arced phrases from his trebles. The finest singing on this disc is undoubtedly Ave Maria, ancilla Trinitatis: an exceptional work and a superb performance. The choir are heard at their finest in the more impassioned moments, of which this
Read more votive antiphon offers many.
