I just dig this crazy Renaissance sound. These guys were extraordinarily prolific, too. He and Thomas Tallis, wow, it’s remarkable that two such geniuses were contemporaries and friends (I think). I recently went to see/hear a performance by The Tallis Scholars and some young singers at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I cried at the sublimity of the music in the space.
