5.0 out of 5 stars Celestial sounds! 10 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase
A marvellous recording by The Clerks' Group of works by an ingenious composer. Ockeghem is sometimes described as a 'difficult' composer, in the sense that his music may not have the immediate sppeal of contemporary composers like Josquin; it seems to me that in Wickham's hands, this music is not only accessable but a revelation! The singers blend wonderfully, but never seem to be overly polished. Many masses from this period are based on melodies from popular songs of the day, but the tune is sometimes difficult to spot in the midst of complex polyphony. 'Au travail suis' is a lovely, haunting tune, whose falling cadences seem to pervade the entire mass named after it. This is a glorious and memorable piece as a result. I feel the need to listen to more of Ockeghem's magical music and buy more of Wickham's performances of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars More superlative work from The Clerks 26 Sep 2011
By E. L. Wisty TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
There have been no end of top-class ensembles dishing out recordings of Renaissance music in recent times. I'm relatively speaking a bit of a latecomer to The Clerks' Group who have been performing since 1992 (or simply The Clerks as they have "rebranded" themselves nowadays), but they've very quickly risen to the top of the rankings in my estimation in the midst of so many eminent vocal outfits - it's not a little praise indeed to say such a thing.

These performances are beautiful and convincing, and leave me with no doubt that this is exactly how Johannes Ockeghem would have wanted his compositions to be heard. It's a crying shame that the majority of The Clerks' nine discs of Ockeghem material are unavailable at this time (I've only been able to get hold of three of them), and incomprehensible that such magnificent music would not be honoured with regular "pressings". We can but hope that the rest will once more become available one day.

On this disc we have the Missa "Au Travail Suis", based upon the chanson of the same name attributed the shadowy figure of "Barbingant" and which here precedes the mass, three motet-chansons, the Missa Sine Nomine ("mass without a name") for five parts, and concluding with the motet "Intemerata Dei Mater".

The accompanying booklet provides notes and sung texts along with translations.

The Clerks' group are the experts in this music, which is absolutely heavenly. The music is sung with great grace and dignity. A must!

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy and worthwhile rendering of Ockeghem 31 Dec 2008
By Ken Cybulska - Published on Amazon.com
Performed simply - a sincere and earnest effort to clearly perform Ockeghem's simple, unadorned harmonies.

A worthy and worthwhile rendering of (some of) Ockeghem's compositions.

Rated four to four and a half stars.
