Format: Audio CD
This is a very good disc of 16th Century polyphony by yet another obscure composer who turns out to be very good. Kerle was a contemporary and colleague of Phillippus de Monte in Prague, and Paul van Nevel maintains that Kerle is a great master who belongs in the company, of de Monte, Lassus and Clemens non Papa. I have the greatest respect for van Nevel but for me this seems a slightly exaggerated claim. It is true that the music is good and very beautiful in places, but to these ears at least it lacks the real depth and sublime effect of the truly great masters.

Nonetheless, there is a very enjoyable selection here. The centrepiece is a setting of the Requiem Mass, and there are extracts from two other mass settings, three good motets and a madrigal. All show a fine command of polyphonic technique and have some lovely moments. I very much enjoy one or two pieces at a time but as a whole disc it doesn't quite hold me in the way that a disc of Josquin might, for example.

The Huelgas Ensemble are, as always, excellent. They are technically excellent and van Nevel always instils genuine engagement with the text into their performances. He favours a very resonant acoustic which can make the effect a bit blurred and individual lines less distinct than with other ensembles, but it's a lovely overall sound which is very well captured by Harmonia Mundi's recording.

You may not agree with me and find that you do think Kerle's music as great as van Nevel does. Even if you don't, this is a very enjoyable disc of fine polyphony and would certainly recommend giving it a try.
