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.
