By Stephen Midgley TOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 Nov. 2015
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This Franco-Flemish polyphonic Requiem Mass, from the early 16th century towards the end of the Josquin era, is presumed to have been composed by either the Flemish Anthonius Divitis or the French Antoine de Févin. The Organum ensemble director, Marcel Pérès, discusses the question in his fascinating booklet essay, drawing no firm conclusion but inclining towards Divitis. I am in no position to judge, since I know nothing else by Divitis and only a couple of works by Févin; from that small acquaintance the work seems to me very much in the style of the latter, but what do I know compared to Pérès?

 Unlike the one other recording available of this Requiem Mass, which I’ll come back to in a moment, Pérès does not attempt here to link the work to a specific historical occasion. Rather, he presents the Mass as the single work of this programme, with a few chant passages interspersed and an anonymous motet at the end. The shortage of additional pieces doesn’t matter one bit, because the Mass itself is a magnificent work. It has both spirituality and resonance and is somewhat in the style of Josquin, with lovely and distinctive passages of paired voices in places. What’s more, it is here rendered in an absolutely superb performance of vehemence and conviction. The Organum ensemble consists of ten voices, with sopranos on the top line and two each of male altos, tenors and basses. In all cases their voices, style, commitment and unity of ensemble are quite outstanding. Their vocal blend is deep and rich, their interpretation profoundly spiritual.

By E. L. Wisty TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 May 2012
Format: Audio CD
Two names appear on the cover of this Requiem - Antoine Divitis (1475?-1530?) and Antoine de Févin (1470?-1511/2). The work is to be found in five manuscripts, of which two attribute it to Févin, one to Divitis and the remaining two remain silent on the matter. Whilst most musicologists award it to Févin, Marcel Pérès, the director of Ensemble Organum, says that we simply do not know.

As always, Pérès and the Ensemble take an idiosyncratic approach to the performance of their chosen work. The depth and gravitas is like vibrations emanating from the very heart of the earth. This is grand liturgical drama of cosmic significance, playing out over endless aeons towards the eschaton.

The accompanying booklet provides notes in French and English, with full Latin sung text with French and English translations.

I heard an excerpt from this requiem mass on the radio and loved it. It is an extraordinary work with a full range of voices which include a bass so low that it sounds like Tibetan Throat Singing.
