[Highland] Consort was unafraid to tackle the sometimes grating tonal shifts and dissonances inherent in some of this music, especially Thomas Tomkins’ “When David heard” and Thomas Tallis’ “Salvator mundi.”

Lobo’s “Versa est in luctum,” a motet composed at the death of Philip II, was especially moving. Its mournful sighs were beautifully sung, several voices emerging clearly from the choir as textures thickened and voices crossed.
