[The] performance was highly disciplined throughout, but never at the expense of their glorious tone, superb diction and splendour of expression.
Review of The Tudor Consort’s Palmerston North performance
Manawatu Standard, March 29 2010
The Tudor Consort presents Renaissance settings of The Lamentations of Jeremiah, including Tallis’s famous work, juxtaposed with a rarely performed setting of 20th Century composer Ernst Krenek. Written in 1941 while in exile in the United States, Krenek combined the strict polyphony of the Renaissance style with 20th Century dodecaphony to produce a compelling protest against the horrors of war.
