5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best recordings of Renaissance Music, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kapel De Lage Landen (Kamp) (Audio CD)
Those who wish to get a better idea of how fifteenth-century sacred music was sung should not overlook this memorable recording. Rigorous and inspired musical interpretation, magnificent and incredibly skilled male voices (I quote only the wondrous bass voice of Harry van der Kamp - at the same time singer and director, as in the best tradition of the "a cappella" singing. A truly flemish Renaissance bass voice - sonorous, round, flexible - which is so hard to find in Renaissance music recordings), excellent acoustics. I would recommend the listener to begin from the last piece, "Anthoni usque limina" (of which Josquin will remember in his "Illibata" motet). It is one of the most upsetting testimonies of fifteenth-century music and spirituality, and Van der Kamp is the only performer who sensed not only the spirit of this music, but also how to perform the cantus firmus on the only musical note on D. The result is unforgettable - as the whole cd.
