Notes and Editorial Reviews

This Pure Audio Blu-ray pack includes one Blu-ray disc, one standard Compact Disc and a 24-page printed booklet with notes, texts and translation.

'It is 40 years since Peter Phillips founded The Tallis Scholars, and perhaps appropriate that they have chosen to move into the "new" technology of Blu-ray audio by re-releasing the most celebrated piece of their repertoire, Allegri's Miserere. Dan Morgan's review describes this as a resounding success, and a landmark. Enough said' (MusicWeb International)

'New release designed to make playing high-resolution surround more accessible to everyone. The Allegri is the standout on this disc in sonic terms, with its main choir set before us, and the soloists
Read more separated off in the surrounding acoustic, for a truly atmospheric effect that’s quite captivating' (Gramophone)
