Format: Audio CD
I was absolutely bowled over by this disc on first hearing. Pierre de la Rue was one of "the forgotten generation" of composers who came immediately after Josquin, but why they were forgotten is a puzzle to me - la Rue's music (like that of his contemporary Gombert) is inventive, skilful, and very, very beautiful. This disc is a setting of his mass based on the chanson `Incessament mon povre cueur lamente'. (I think my spellchecker has just gone into meltdown, but its 16th-century French probably isn't all it might be.) The music is utterly lovely and is sung superbly by Amarcord, who were a new ensemble to me. They sing in the Flemish tradition at a low pitch and record in a resonant acoustic which gives the polyphony a magnificent rich sound, and the mass movements are interspersed with plainsong propers which are so well sung and sound so lovely that they simply glow.

This is a thoroughly out-of-the-way disc of rather obscure music, but if anyone should happen upon this page I strongly urge you to buy it. I've loved it since the moment it arrived and play it often and with huge pleasure. It's a real hidden gem.

They were a misery sometimes, these Franco-Flemish composers, though they always wrote fabulous music. This disc revolves around Pierre de la Rue's most famous chanson "Incessament mon povre cueur lamente" - "Incessantly doth my poor heart lament", whose lyrics speak of the woe of the singer and wish for death. It formed the basis for a set of mass Ordinaries by de la Rue performed here, sandwiched along with plainchant Propers between his original chanson and an anonymous contrafactum of it, a Protestant piece, taking as its text John 3:16 "Sic Deus dilexit". The mass Propers are somewhat randomly taken from the 24th Sunday after Whitsun, the booklet justifying this with no firm argument other than a claim that a mass based on a well-known chanson with such a negative text would not have been performed on a major feast day or Sundays in Advent, Lent or Easter. Since it is not based on a plainchant melody, there is simply no clue as to which occasions this set of Ordinaries was intended for.

The works are performed by the German quintet Amacord. There seems to be little else by them of this kind of genre and they would appear to be more generalists than specialists - looking at the discography in the booklet they could be regarded as a German equivalent of the King's Singers - the discography includes works by Billy Joel, Ray Charles, The Beatles, Supertramp, Queen, folk music and Christmas music from Trinidad. This makes the achievement of this disc all the more impressive as it ranks very highly in my opinion amongst the Renaissance polyphony discography. Amacord perform with a real delicacy, and even the plainchant Propers, which are often something you want to get over and done with to hear the next polyphonic piece, become integral to the whole. The booklet contains some informative notes plus full sung texts and translations.
