The Lewes Singers : English Madrigals & Motets from 16th to 20th Century
Here in our midst is a fine choral group––amateur only in that they are not paid, yet with the seriousness of purpose and necessary discipline and proficiency to tackle difficult music and manage it beautifully.
The Lewes Singers were formed in 2004 by their music director, Nicholas Houghton. This CD is representative of their repertoire, spanning from Tallis, Weelkes and Purcell through to Tavener, Britten and Finzi. The group’s diction is clean and crisp and the intonation almost impeccable. The blend is sweet.
If you are a fan of fine a cappella choral singing across the centuries, don’t let this CD escape your attention. It’s £8 from Skylark or online at lewessingers.org.uk
