Comments: These motets are exquisite examples of their genre, and will make a fine addition to the repertoire of any choral ensemble. Although written for unaccompanied voices, they also lend themselves quite well to performance by instrumental consorts, particularly those composed of recorders and/or viols. There are few challenges of technique in the music; students and amateurs at all levels will find these motets both accessible and rewarding.
