Media Vita - John Sheppard

Media Vita - John Sheppard

SKU: CDA68187

Even by the standards of a time and place—Tudor England—in which masterpieces of choral polyphony appear to have been virtually an everyday occurrence, there is something uniquely and intensely compelling about the surviving works of John Sheppard.


This is music designed to be sung by liturgical professionals, and none rise to its demands quite like Westminster Cathedral Choir.
