Glorious Gibbons, both rare and well-loved, reaches an apogee of expression in this anthology featuring genuine consort/chamber/chapel forces. Revealed as early Protestant sacred music of the highest order, all elements combine in a micro-universe of sonorous delight – not only in a celebration of Gibbons’s exquisite musical craftsmanship, but also with the texts given their true interpretational, devotional prominence. Subtle, seductively supple and sinuous singing and playing breathe vivid life into works we have grown used to hearing in more massive interpretations. Volume two from this dream-team will be eagerly awaited.
