Review quote

With its compact dimensions, the Truro Mass is clearly redolent of the Tudor masters Byrd and Tye, now passed through the austere filter of Stravinsky. * Gramophone November 2016 * Jackson describes it as compact and direct, inspired by the Byrd masses but suitable for modern liturgy, with plenty of references to early music. There is a lovely gentleness for much of the Kyrie, and the music is full of lovely polyphonic textures, whilst the Gloria has its jazzier moments. The short Sanctus is all vibrant radiance, whilst the Benedictus is quiet yet magical in its texture. The Agnus Dei starts of quite austerely with just two line, but Jackson allows his textures to thicken until the lovely transparency of the closing pages. * www.planethugill.com, September 2016 *show more
