The Tudors at Prayer

Henry VIII, Mary, and Elizabeth I dominated the political, social and religious life of England during the 16th century. They all valued music deeply, and it formed an important part of their daily lives, both public and private; each monarch had a profound impact on the form and function of sacred music. Magnificat performs a programme of some of the most ineffable and sublime music of the age, offering music that may have accompanied their Highnesses' more introspective moments.

"Magnificat's cast list is about as good as it gets …” BBC Music Magazine
"The sound these singers make is exquisite..” The Sunday Times
