Tudor Anthems: Clare College Choir/Timothy Brown (Gamut, CD). Weelkes, Gibbons, Tye and (not to be forgotten) Mudd: the music of Reformation England sung by one of Cambridge's best mixed-voice choirs. MW

Leontyne Price Sings Samuel Barber (RCA Victor, CD). Classic reissues, including Knoxville under Thomas Schippers and the Hermit Songs with Barber himself at the piano. MW
