New CD: "The Tudor Choir Book"

June 13, 2017

 

Whitgift has partnered with the English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble (ECSE) to record a new album of Tudor music.

Director of Choral Music, Mr Ronny Krippner, directed the Croydon Minster Choir of Whitgift School and the ECSE, with whom the School enjoys a long and successful music partnership, through a repertoire including rare recordings of Tudor instrumental items by Coperario, Bassano and Ferrabosco, as well as choral greats from Tallis, Batten, Morley and Phillips.

 

This new CD celebrates Archbishop John Whitgift, the School’s Founder, who believed music to represent an integral part of divine worship and who played an influential role in securing the survival of the English choral tradition, during the late sixteenth century.

 

The Croydon Minster Choir featured on this record comprises the Minster Choristers, Choral Scholars and Lay Clerks of the School. The album was released by Convivium Records, on 13 June 2017 and is available on Amazon.
