This is a re-issue from 1990 of material that is some 400 years old but has had to wait all this time for technology to catch up. It is a collection of segments from Masses that can be programmed into your CD player to reconstruct various liturgies for different festivals. Read the helpful booklet for more details. The William Byrd Choir sing beautifully and perhaps get close to what our ancestors would have heard, had they been Catholics meeting undercover to continue their observances.
