    Jacobus Clemens non Papa - Behold, how joyful: Mass and Motets: One of the most prolific and celebrated composers of the 16th century, this collection of a mass and motets by Clemens non Papa ("not the pope") was lauded by Early Music Review: "if you are unfamiliar with this repertoire, do buy this; it will change your life." Performed by the Brabant Ensemble under Stephen Rice.

    Orlande de Lassus - Lamentations Jeremiae Prophetae: During the last twenty years of his life, Orlande de Lassus was the most celebrated composer in Europe. Performed by Collegium Regale under Stephen Cleobury, the Sunday Times wrote that: “their luxuriant blend of voices is lavished on two large-scale works by Lassus, enveloping the listener in an indulgent cocoon of sound”

  • Four CDs for £20 Four early discs from the professional chamber-choir Tenebrae, who since their formation by former King's Singer Nigel Short have become one of the finest choral-groups in the UK.

These four discs are the first they released on Signum - covering music by Rachmaninov, Karl Jenkins, Howells and many others. The Dream of Herod features music for Advent, anthems for the Mother & Child, music for Christmas, and The Dream of Herod, a semi-dramatic contemporary work with a particular resonance at Christmas.
