Robert Fayrfax (1464-1521)
A motet and mass by one of the three "greats" of pre-reformation English music (the other two being Dunstaple and Taverner).
I am not particularly keen on The Sixteen as to my ear they are simply too "soft"; there is no edge in their tone unlike that of, say, the Tallis Scholars or (better) Cardinall's Musick. But I'm sure many will disagree with me on that!
