Stile Antico's newest programme centres on Thomas Tallis's magnificent seven-part 'Christmas' Mass, based on the festive plainchant Puer natus est ('A boy is born'). The mass is interspersed with seasonal Tudor music, including William Byrd's exquisite Propers for the fourth Sunday of Advent, responsories by Taverner and Sheppard, Robert White's exuberant setting of the Magnificat, and Tallis's own sublime Videte miraculum.

Review 1 for Puer Natus Est: Tudor Music for Advent & Christmas
Not your run-of-the-mill Christmas album.
Date:January 10, 2012
The music on this CD transports me to beautiful old cathedrals and gives me such a sense of peace and tranquility. Just the thing for a hectic Christmas season! If you like classical choral music, this is the perfect CD.
