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 Desperata.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better balanced 9 Feb 2011
Unlike their other collaborations, director Bernard Fabre-Garrus has here begun to get the balance right, with the core ensemble of A Sei Voci now consisting of twelve members, an evenly balanced ATBarB x 3, and the accompanying choir from the Maîtrise des Pays de Loire comprising nine voices; they are not therefore overwhelming the male voices of ASV like on other discs, and their performance is more solid and assured.

It's a decent enough recording but having said that I'm still not a huge fan of the massed voices approach to Josquin. Overall I much prefer the L'Homme Armé masses recorded by the Tallis Scholars.

The booklet contains lyrics with translations and notes in French & English.

This disc is also available as part of a six-disc boxed set.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb recording 15 Aug 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I agree strongly with the previous reviewer. The Missa l'homme armé super voces musicales is surely one of the greatest treasures in the history of Western art music, one of the half-dozen or so greatest works of the musical Renaissance. This recording features music-making at the highest level: a powerful, deeply moving experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars good but not the best 22 Aug 2006
By Norbert Wende - Published on Amazon.com
I like A Sei Voci as a very good Josquin ensemble, bad luck for them that there exists a Tallis Scholars interpretation of the same works. I think A Sei Voci does not come near to the overwhelming singing of Tallis Scholars and Peter Phillips conceptual approach to these two different master pieces.
