5.0 out of 5 stars Touching the Master of Musicians 3 Mar 2004
Desprez may become the big name in the market of educated music in a few years time (2021 will mark the 5th century of his death and I guess some record companies will grasp the opportunity to record and launch the composer to a mass public). In the meantime, those of us who have the chance to listen to his music will be transformed for ever by the experience... Desprez has something in its clarity and luminosity that no other Renaissance Polyphonist has. Listen first to the VIRGO PRUDENTISSIMA motet and let your soul float in perfect celestial harmony, melody and rythm: a perfection that, in my opinion, no later composer has achieved so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars A much better showing 7 Feb 2011
By E. L. Wisty TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
After the letdown of this ensemble's Missa Pange Lingua this disc is a massive improvement. Having foregone the services of a youth choir, the core six voices are expanded to eleven with a good balance over the vocal range. The mass is enjoyable in itself, but then just listen to the collection of motets. I agree with the previous reviewer that the motet "O virgo prudentissima" is the highlight of the disc, and probably just about as good as any individual rendition of any piece by Josquin I have heard.

The accompanying booklet contains lyrics with translations and notes in French, English and Spanish.

This disc is also available in a six-disc boxed set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Performance 25 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
A Sei Voci have really got the right technique for Josquin's music. Their sound is slightly deeper than the Tallis Scholars for example, but equally clear. I have started collecting all of their Josquin masses and hope they go o to record Fortuna Despe

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings me to tears 20 Mar 2007
By Blue Hose Bone 311 - Published on Amazon.com
This must be what heaven is like. The mass is fantasitic, and the 6 voice arrangement of Ave Maria in the motets is the best version I have heard (I have listened to many). In short, absolutely stunning music and impeccably sung by A Sei Voci - they are now on my short list of great performers. I want this played at my funeral.

2.0 out of 5 stars Perversely Muddy! 24 Oct 2008
By Giordano Bruno - Published on Amazon.com
I should have expected some kind of new perversity from this very unpredictable ensemble when I noticed that the cover picture on this CD of the Mass of the Blessed Virgin is a portrait of Lucrezia Borgia!

A Sei Voci can sing. They sing extremely well on their recording of the Miserere and a mass by Gregorio Allegri. Thus it's mere perversity that they choose to sing these motets and mass movements as an imitation of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, conducted by Herbert von Karajan. When singing Josquin-era polyphony, more voices are always less, and Sei Voci in this performance is really Undici Voci - eleven voices, without the tight ensemble tuning and dictiom to make such a choral onslaught attractive. Thus there is NO sense of independence in the four<five lines of the mass. The prolations (changes of count from two to three and back) are mushy. The whole chorus swells and fades together with no sense of the movement toward cadences, there are truly illogical moments of rubato, and the tempi are sluggish; that's the "von Karajan" effect.

The acoustic mushiness of this performance is aggravated, I suspect, by the choice of recording it in the sanctuary of the Abbey Fontevraud. I've performed there myself. It's a stunningly beautiful and tranquil place for music , but the acoustic is not supportive of polyphony, with echoing resonances of 3, 7, and 8 seconds. On the CD, this is heard as white noise. However, on your next vacation in France, by all means include Fontevraud, even if there is a concert scheduled. Google it, and you'll see why.
