Taverner: Dum transisset sabbatum (excerpt)

CD Taverner

© 2012, Obsidian Records

One of the first of Taverner's works that I got to know, and perhaps one of the most performed of his compositions in modern times. The plainsong which punctuates the polyphony is gloriously sung by the men of Alamire, but you'll need to get the entire track to enjoy it! Also wonderful is the final 'Alleluia' which could only be from Taverner's passionate pen.
