John Rutter has always dominated the choral music field, mostly performances and recordings of his own compositions. Who knew that a colelction of early church music would be so captivating. The Cambrisge Singers are in fine voice as they navigate the performance practices of the late Renaissance and early Baroque periods. The new group that specializes in Early Music La Nuova Musica give sensitive and appropriate accompaniment to the singers. I can not think of enough superlatives to use when reommending this recording, which I do without reservation.
