The first half of the sixteenth century followed a very turbulent course in all of Europe, and England, as well, went through troubled times.

Henry VIII succeeded to the throne in 1509, and reigned for 38 years. In 1533 he founded the Anglican church, he married six times, waged wars, and even found a little time to do some composing. After his death in 1547, he was succeeded by Edward VI, who was followed in 1555, after the death of Mary, by Elizabeth I, Henry VIII’s younger daughter.

Elizabeth had the task of bringing peace and stability to the country, and during her long reign, English music flourished as never before.

Press reviews

Apeldoornse Courant

Aanstormend Talent (…) Loepzuivere intonatie en het ontbreken van ook maar een zweem van vibrato (…) Luister (…) beeldschoon album, dit koor en zijn dirigent tonen een prachtig stijlbesef en een haast griezelige accuratesse, gepaard aan een sterk doorontwikkeld ensemblegeluid (…)

NRC/Handelsblad

opmerkelijk knap is het hoe het koor ook in de meest capricieuze melodische lijnen (Ave Maria van William Cornysh) vasthoudt aan een kraakhelder muzikale eenheid (…)

BBC Music Magazine

palpable feeling for wide harmonic spaces and those lovely intertwining melodic arches. (…) (…) Excellent countertenors (…)

Gramophone

Characteristic of the Dutch sound is a depht, richness and a full-throated sonority (…) (…) A choir to watch (…)
