Pygott Missa Veni sancte spiritus

NI5578
£14.99

Details

The elaborate melismatic writing in Pygott’s five-part Mass Veni sancte spiritus poses considerable challenges, which Darlington and his choir meet with persuasive style. The ear is constantly delighted by the fluid interplay of different vocal combinations, pierced through by ornate counterpoint for solo ensembles. George Humphreys’s pure-toned solo treble is an especially impressive feature here. Thus, the Christ Church choristers discover the subtle play of light and shade in the scoring that defines Pygott’s heartfelt response to the liturgy.
