Tallis, Spem in Alium plus bonus CD Monteverdi, Josquin, Palestrina, etc Oxford Camerata Jeremy Summerly 2 CDs, Naxos
Naxos are having their 18th birthday this year and recently celebrated with a do in London. Apparently they are also including a bonus CD with a few releases to share this birthday, or something like that.
In this case, it makes quite a good way for people who think they might like to get interested in early sacred music, to sample the fare at a reasonable price. Tallis's Spem in Alium is a beautiful piece, lovingly performed here, and the bonus CD includes a nice cross section of early masterpieces.
