The same but different,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Josquin - Missa Hercules Dux Ferrariae / Motets (Audio CD)
After having been a bit disappointed by the Hilliard's Ockeghem set I find myself returning to their Josquin set here, the first Josquin I bought, to remind myself just how good they can be. I hadn't listened to it for some while simply because of regularly collecting Josquin discs by various ensembles irrespective of whether or not I own the same material performed by someone else. So I have been listening to the Tallis Scholars, the Orlando Consort, the Dufay Ensemble, De Labyrintho and so on in the meantime, but I wouldn't want to be without any of these as they are all great discs in their own way - the same, but different.
Two discs in a single jewel case. Like all the sets in this Virgin Veritas series of reissues, the booklet notes are minimal and there are no lyrics. Nevertheless this set is a bargain and an excellent introduction to Josquin.
