Format: Audio CD
What riches await the attentive listener who cares to explore the world of the Renaissance parody mass! A great composer creates a distinctive and beautiful motet or chanson and then another, equally fine, takes this musical material and develops, extends, even enhances it, resulting in a new, more substantial work that still has those same qualities of beauty and distinction, but multiplied several times over. From the very start it was a brilliant formula for musical fascination and delight, and it still works just as effectively for us today. The Tallis Scholars and Peter Phillips have already brought us many examples of this benign plagiarism which flourished so honourably in Renaissance times, and the present disc is one of their finest.

The Spanish composer Guerrero's motet Maria Magdalene, which opens the CD, is a beautiful and affecting setting of a resurrection text. It begins with a distinctive rising motif followed, at the words "et altera Maria", by the first of a number of graceful, bell-like descending figures that characterise the first section of the piece. These motifs, and the work as a whole, offer a superb model for the following Missa Maria Magdalene by Alonso Lobo, Guerrero's pupil and his junior by about 30 years, and indeed the younger composer uses his master's material to great effect to fashion a truly lovely sacred masterpiece.

But the connections do not end there. Music-lovers who know Paul McCreesh's marvellous CD programmes of Spanish Renaissance music, such as the Morales Mass for the Feast of St. Isidore of Seville, will immediately recognise the beautiful opening instrumental piece on that disc, Guerrero's untitled Canión, as music identical to the first half of the composer's Maria Magdalene motet.
