Polyphony from the York cycle of Mystery Plays and the first recording of an anonymous 15th-century Mass, the manuscript of which survived the Reformation due to being recycled as book-bindings, form an original programme, completed by three of Gavin Bryars’s solo Laude and his richly hued Super flumina. A game of two halves, the recording shifts perspective awkwardly when the team enlarges at half-time, and their sense of pitch threatens occasionally to take a stroll down The Shambles. Overall, it’s an interesting, imaginative and stylish performance from this clutch of young professional voices.
