MANUEL CARDOSO: MISSA SECUNDI TONI AND OTHER WORKS
Manuel Cardoso (1566–1650) was one of the most important composers of the golden age of Portuguese polyphony around the turn of the seventeenth century. But modern choirs have been surprisingly slow to explore the rich legacy of his compositions: this is the first recording of his Missa Secundi Toni, and the first of any of his works with brass consort, it's dark colours providing an effective contrast with the young voices of the Girton College Choir.
