“The Renaissance Choir, under its distinguished conductor Peter Gambie, gave the first Anglo-Hungarian performance of Tallis’s motet Spem in Alium with the Budapest Monteverdi Choir. Mr. Gambie described the 40-part work as “the Mount Everest” of Renaissance music. Written for 8 choirs with five parts in each, its challenge is supreme. The Renaissance Choir has a homogeneous, massive sound and performed a variety of works in a superb expressive style. Their singing ranged from the heartfelt atmosphere of begging pianos to animated joy and dancing rhythms.”
