Many of the recordings included in this collection are definitive interpretations of vocal music of the English Renaissance, and most of these recordings are historic. Alfred Deller and Vanguard Records were at the forefront of historically informed performances of early music, and the results of that collaboration bore full fruit when focused on the music of the composers included here. This extensive collection includes the first recording of a Bach cantata using original instruments, numerous premiere recordings of the works of Byrd, Tallis and the composers of the English Renaissance, and the first complete recording of Handel’s Alexander’s Feast. This set also includes five Tallis hymns never before released on CD, performed by the Deller Consort.

The Connoisseur's Handel

Handel: Coronation Anthems

Handel: Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne
