This CD presents a selection of works from the Chirk Castle part-books, a fascinating collection of devotional music from the Tudor period that remained hidden in the castle library in North-East Wales for 300 years: edited for performance by Dr. David Evans, who worked at Aberystwyth University Music Department in the 1980s & subsequently in Bangor University Music Department - the booklet notes are by him. This recording focuses on the unaccompanied items, presenting for the first time a selection of the ‘full' services and anthems found in the manuscripts, including seven unique to the Chirk collection.
