Notes and Editorial Reviews


How many choral enthusiasts are really familiar with the works of 16th/17th century English composer Peter Philips? If his compositions do appear on recordings, they usually are sparsely represented on compilations with other composers—there’s one notable recording devoted to his work, from the Winchester Cathedral Choir (Hyperion); but for that release, and until this excellent offering from the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge—a choir that under Richard Marlow’s direction consistently resides among the world’s premier choral ensembles—we haven’t had an opportunity to indulge fully enough in this very worthy composer’s contributions to Elizabethan musical culture. Clearly, without including
Read more Philips’ supremely crafted motets, we can’t completely understand or appreciate the musical world dominated in most summaries of the era by Byrd and Palestrina, and Marlow’s sublime renderings of Philips’ 1612 Cantiones sacrae must take their place among choral music lovers’ favored anthems of the period. The Trinity College Choir is a joy to hear—this is one of the most refined, disciplined, well-rehearsed, and most inherently musical choirs you’ll ever hear, presenting a consistently gorgeous sound supported by a very skilled recording team. Don’t miss this.
