Fabulous Early Music,
This review is from: Ockeghem: The Ockeghem Collection (Audio CD)
This 5-CD set is a wonderful re-issue. The Clerk's Group's eight-disc Ockeghem series are all excellent and highly recommended. This ensemble pretty well set the standard for this repertoire with the series, from which all of Ockeghem's works have been extracted and re-issued in this set. The music is magnificent, the interpretation outstandingly good and the performance technically excellent with recording quality to match, and the set represents fantastic value. At the time of writing you can get it for well under 15 quid. It doesn't include the excellent works by other composers you'd get if you bought all 8 discs separately and that is a loss, admittedly. However, the original eight discs would set you back upwards of £100 and this set offers a feast of magnificent 15th Century music in outstanding performances at a fraction of that. It's a great set and I recommend it very highly. You won't be disappointed.
