Gimell Playing

Gimell Playing Elizabeth's Tune The Tallis Scholars sing William Byrd Directed by Peter Phillips Gimell's first DVD-Video, Playing Elizabeth's Tune, focuses on the life and works of William Byrd. This multi-faceted DVD has a playing time of over 3 hours and includes filmed performances by The Tallis Scholars, a documentary on the composer and over 50 minutes of bonus audio tracks. The filmed performances (like a CD with pictures) feature over 70 minutes of sacred music by Elizabeth l's favourite composer including the 'Mass for 4 Voices' and 'Ave verum corpus'. It is performed by candlelight in the beautiful surrounds of Tewkesbury Abbey and recorded in genuine surround sound. In a seventy-minute documentary produced for the BBC, Charles Hazlewood further explores the life and music of William Byrd and the troubled times that produced some of the most intimate and passionate sacred music ever written. Bonus audio tracks including 'Byrd's Mass for 5 voices' and 'Mass for 3 voices' result in the complete audio recordings of Byrd's Masses being available on this one DVD.
