Kyrie
Mass for Four Voices
William Byrd (1543-1623)

From the BIS Records SACD 'Times go by Turns'

Showcasing male classical vocal quartet New York Polyphony's signature fusion of refined musicianship and modern approach, 'Times go by Turns' features powerful performances of music written by English Renaissance masters Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, and the obscure medieval composer John Plummer. The ensemble adds contemporary color to the program with two commissioned works: Andrew Smith's soaring 'Kyrie: Cunctipotens Genitor Deus' and the playfully intricate 'Ite missa est' of award-winning composer Gabriel Jackson. Completing the sequence is one of the last compositions by eminent English composer Richard Rodney Bennett, a setting of a poem by Sir Thomas Browne called 'A Colloquy with God'. Scored for four unaccompanied male voices, this spellbinding piece was dedicated to the ensemble shortly before the composer's death in 2012.

Hailed as a "...complex, clear-eyed yet still painfully beautiful tapestry," (Gramophone) 'Times go by Turns' was nominated for a GRAMMY® in the Best Chamber Music/ Small Ensemble Performance category.
