• The choral tradition of British cathedrals and universities is world famous. Over the centuries, an immense trove of musical treasures came into being on the British Isles: euphonious choral settings which, in the meantime, have become increasingly popular on the European continent. The figuralchor köln conducted by Richard Mailänder has recorded some of the most beautiful motets and anthems in the original language. The settings by notable composers such as Thomas Tallis, William Byrd and Charles Villiers Stanford provide a comprehensive overview of the long tradition of English sacred choral music from the 16th to the 19th century.
