Format: Audio CD
From the moment this first begins to play, you realise this is something special: the exquisite clarity of the vocal tone, and the overall crystal nature of the recording, makes this a wonderful collection of sacred music indeed. As other reviewers have recognised, there is considerable variety in the collection of pieces here. Although the Requiem is the most famous piece, it does have a studied and dispassionate coolness, not present in the other pieces; nevertheless it has a striking beauty of tone and harmonic line, and at a higher register than the other pieces. Perhaps this contrast is what leads us to find the other pieces, predominately the 'Fors Seulement' to have a greater warmth, as there is less treble and much greater bass to add warmth to these pieces, which are typical of most of Ockeghem's work.
In summary, this is a choir at the very peak of performance, delivering a very accessible and very melodic collection of sacred pieces. Production values are similarly outstanding, which makes this an essential disc for any collector of early music. (Gramophone 'outstanding' award).

Format: Audio CD
The Clerks' Group have over the past few years gained a very strong reputation for themselves in the small, but very competitive field of early music, largely through the strength of their personnel and choice of repertoire. For the former they turn to established professionals who will be well known to anyone with even a passing interest in groups such as The Tallis Scholars, The Cardinall's Musick and the Sixteen, but their approach is much more rehearsal-intensive, and consequently the ensemble is more satisfying than groups which meet for only short periods of time and rely on the preternatural sight-reading abilities of their singers. Their repertoire is similarly interesting: they have made the music of the Low Countries in the 15th and early 16th centuries their own, and have dug up some fascinating new works alongside well-established pieces.

This disc presents the earliest complete setting of the Requiem for polyphonic voices, as well as chansons by Pierre de la Rue, Ockeghem and Brumel. The requiem is a stark, spare piece, which seems to turn its back on warmth and happiness. The chansons, in contrast, are a much more passionate group of pieces. The original was written by de la Rue, but Ockeghem and Brumel later developed the work each in their own fashion. By far the most interesting is that by Brumel, in which the bass, Robert MacDonald, produces some fabulous low notes to underpin a rich harmonic texture.

In all, a very fine disc of early music. Buy it.

Format: Audio CD
My first listening of this CD was mesmerising - the music is beautiful and it is gorgeously sung. The Fors Seulement Chanson by Ockeghem is very moving and so is the mass of the same name. Whilst the Requiem is the more famous piece, I found it less warm than the other pieces on the CD. All in all this is a trully great recording. If you are interested in polyphony, then this is a must for you.
