Product Description

An exact contemporary of Monteverdi (they were born and died in the same years), the Bohemian Christophorus Demantius was a prodigiously inventive composer. Like Gesualdo, he explored new musical avenues with extraordinary ingenuity while remaining attached to the polyphonic style of the Renaissance. In this respect these highly festive `Whitsun Vespers' are something of a sumptuous transition from the `old' counterpoint of Lassus and Praetorius to the imminent innovations of Schein and Schütz. Sung with such exquisite fluency, the Huelgas Ensemble under Van Nevel conveys the excitement of an epoch that yielded some of the most beautiful combinations of poetry and music."" Tarik O´Regan, The Observer
