Tudor City: THE RECORD ALBUM
Who knew? There's a record album out there called "Tudor City", with cover artwork featuring the complex's iconic neon sign.
New York Polyphony is a vocal chamber ensemble who sing everything from Renaissance and Medieval works to cutting-edge contemporary material. This 2010 release focuses on English service music around the time of the Tudor Dynasty -- hence the name of the record -- and was recorded in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
