Product Description

Product Description

Few composers of any age have enjoyed the widespread admiration and unanimous praise of successive generations as Josquin Desprez. He is considered the greatest creator and innovator of musical composition during the Renaissance, and for some half a millennium his music has stood the test of time. He is remembered as much for his own works as for his lasting influence on those of his contemporaries and students, demonstrated in many of the compositions in tribute of 'the Master' featured in this programme. The programme's centrepiece is Jean Richafort's Requiem Mass, Missa pro defunctis, a tribute that employs several of Josquin's compositional devices. The King's Singers once again demonstrate their versatility and trademark precision in this new programme devised by leading early-music scholar and conductor David Skinner.

Review

'.. this performance is characterised by The King s Singers celebrated clarity of sound, immaculate intonation and ensemble. With just six male voices, one to a part, they create a glorious resonance the effect is nothing short of ethereal and other-worldly. (...) In short, this is music of high seriousness heard in performances of the highest order.' --BBC Music Magazine

This must be one of the most beautiful albums The King s Singers have given us in their 45-year career. --Daily Mail 16th August 2013

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical... 22 Mar 2013
By E. L. Wisty TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
...you wait ages for a Requiem In Memoriam Josquin Desprez by Jean Richafort, then three come along at once. We have had the stunning disc by Cinquecento, Richafort: Requiem, a re-release of the Paul van Nevel & Huelgas Ensemble recording, Richafort: Requiem in memoriam Josquin Desprez, and now this new disc by the King's Singers.

Now it may not be all that "cool" for a serious Early Music enthusiast to be caught listening to a King's Singers album; indeed it might be the kind of thing which the purchaser would like to have in a plain brown package lest he be seen leaving the record shop (do such things still exist these days?). But this is really rather good, whilst not quite matching the others. Direction duties are taken by David Skinner (Cardinall's Musick, Alamire), and the sextet of vocalists bring a lighter, pacier interpretation than the other two.

The programme has a considerable cross-over with the Cinquecento set: apart from the Requiem there are the "Musae Jovis" of both Benedictus Appenzeller and Nicolas Gombert, "O Mors Inevitabilis" of Hieronymous Vinders and "Nymphes, nappés" of Josquin. As well as Josquin's "Salve regina", there is a USP here in the form of a motet in tribute to Josquin by the sadly vastly under-recorded Jacquet of Mantua, "Dum vastos Adriae fluctus".
