Product Description

Product Description

In this selection of settings by masters like Willaert and de Rore, among others, of the verse of Virgil, Horace and Catullus, Paul Van Nevel offers us, with the subtlety of perception and the rigorous but flexible attention to detail we have come to expect from him, another dazzling excursion into the rich and fascinating by ways of early Renaissance vocal music. 'Willaert s piece, in particular, is achingly beautiful: for this alone, it is worth buying this very fine disc.' Stephen Pettitt, The Sunday Times, 13 January 2002 '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, 13 January 2002 'Sublime repertoire, lovely singing.' Anna Picard, The Independent on Sunday, 27 January 2002

Review

***** (performance) **** (recording) 'These Renaissance settings of Classical poetry are infused with a sense of nostalgia and melancholy, their fluid melodies delicately painted here by candid voices and wistful instruments.' --Kate Bolton, BBC Music Magazine, October 2014

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a side to some of the greatest composers of the Renaissance I have not seen before - the use of classical poetry as settings for music. Here there are no less than six settings of Dido's final words from the Aeneid, as set by Josquin Desprez, Jean Mouton, the rather under-recorded Marbrianus de Orto, Jacobus Vaet, Theodoricus Gerarde (of whom I must confess I had never heard before) and Orlando di Lasso. Mostly these are polyphonic, but perhaps the most effective here is the arrangement by Marbrianus with solo soprano voice accompanied by deeply mournful strings (it's possible of course that voice parts have here, and indeed maybe on others too, been replaced by strings rather than the instrumentation being original, but there is no information given on such matters).

Staying with Virgil, there are two settings, by Adrian Willaert and Cipriano de Rore respectively, of Aeneas' speech to his comrades from Book 1, "O socii neque enim". From the pen of Ludwig Senfl there are three settings from Horace's odes & epodes, with a flavour which to my ears at least almost anticipates the incipient opera of the beginning of the next century, plus another Horace ode from de Rore.

Completing the programme are three French languages pieces - firstly a paraphrase of Catullus by Dominique Phinot, secondly an adaptation of a work from Anacreon (or associated with his name at any rate), presumably a drinking song, arranged by Richard de Renvoisy, and finally, dated somewhat earlier (c. 1350-1400) than the rest of the works, an anonymous ballad from the Chantilly Codex "Lamech Judith et Rachel".
