I purchased this set very soon after my first experience of Josquin courtesy of The Hilliard Ensemble
(and incidentally I agree with the reviewer Sid Nuncius that the two sets complement each other well). They got me hooked, and have since gone on to acquire numerous Josquin offerings by many other outfits, including the Orlando Consort, Dufay Ensemble and De Labyrintho, amongst several others, whether presenting the same or different material.
We are blessed indeed when it come to recordings of Josquin, for even though there are other discs I would rescue ahead of this on fleeing a burning house (Missa Hercules Dux Ferrara, Miserere, Motets (De Labyrintho)
, Motets (Orlando Consort)
& Various (Dufay Ensemble)
), this is still good enough to get a definite five stars without hesitation.
These two discs provide a fine introduction to Josquin, and are a definite bargain. Packaged in single jewel case along with booklet providing notes with lyrics and translations in English, French & German.
