This review is from: Gombert - Missa Media Vita (Audio CD)
This recording of Gombert's Missa "Media vita in morte sumus" plus half a dozen motets at first hearing sounds like a whole series of self-similar pieces; repeated listenings however draw the hearer deeper into subtle complexities in the interweaving of the six voices of the Hilliard Ensemble, here expanded from their core four members with an extra tenor and the extra depth of a bass. This is rich, opulent music to return to time and again.
The booklet's notes are relatively brief & the sung texts are given in Latin only without translation - a little lazy really.
