  • Ensemble Plus Ultra

Described by Early Music Today as ‘a crack squad of the finest British early music singers’, Ensemble Plus Ultra received the 2012 Gramophone Early Music Award for its ten-disc survey of the music of Tomás Luis de Victoria.

The group turns its deep affinity for the Spanish-born priest and composer’s work to a selection of Christmas pieces, set in company with exquisite seasonal motets by his 16th-century contemporaries.
