Sandwiched between Victoria’s two grandest double-choir compositions, the Tallis Scholars’ programme‎ features Tallis’s seven-voice Christmas Missa Puer natus. Its three surviving movements are separated by masterpieces of this seasonal repertoire, the two by Sheppard involving the specialist high treble voice. The modern pieces by Pärt, Britten and Tavener have long been recognised as classics.
