  • The Cardinall's Musick
  • Andrew Carwood director

The Cardinall’s Musick presents a programme of sacred works from England and Europe before and after the Reformation.

Although almost 150 years separate Dunstable’s motet Speciosa facta est and Byrd’s consort song, Lullaby, my sweet little baby, the two pieces share a serenity that connects with the simple beauty of Palestrina’s Christmas Mass.
