Odyssean Ensemble - Byrd: The Great Service & Anthems - Gramophone (PQ)

Given its unassailable stature, William Byrd’s Great Service is curiously under-recorded. Colm Carey and the Odyssean Ensemble establish the entire sequence of canticles among the masterpieces of European polyphony with singing as bold and gutsy as it is polished, and direction that lives up to the grandeur of Byrd’s vision.
