CD Cover: Exiled: Music by Philips and DeringNew Release – Exiled: Music by Philips and Dering

The internationally acclaimed Rose Consort of Viols joins forces with the Choir of King’s College, Aberdeen, and its director, David J. Smith, in a recording of music by two English Catholic exiles of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries.

The CD features consort music for viols and keyboard works taken from editions by David published in the scholarly series, Musica Britannica.

Early Music Review – 5* review

‘With the Rose Consort listeners know that they will be hearing consummate performances. David Smith is not only the world expert on Philips now, but is also himself a fine harpsichordist. The Choir of King’s College lives up to its illustrious name, with the Canadian soprano Frauke Jürgensen in fine solo voice. The selection of material for this programme is excellent, and judiciously organized. The more familiar music by Philips is its own recommendation, but the disc is worth buying for Dering’s music alone.’
