Product Description

Product Description

The second project of Collegium Vocale Gent and Philippe Herreweghe for Phi to focus on Renaissance music is devoted to one of the most remarkable of all composers:Carlo Gesualdo.Both his life,characterised by extravagant and excessive behaviour,and his compositions left their mark on the history of music.Although best known for his secular music,he also wrote an almost equivalent number of sacred works that demonstrate his fervent faith.The Tenebrae Responsories comprise a set of pieces for Holy Week,in all twenty-seven motets for six voices,a psalm,and a hymn,published under his own supervision in 1611.As in his madrigals,the music is underpinned by many unexpected chromatic variations that create expressive images evoking tears,the earthquake,the despair of Christ on the cross,etc.The acoustics of the church of the village of Asciano in Tuscany,where the programme was recorded in 2011,create the perfect soundscape for this music.

Format: Audio CD
This would appear to my ears as the best recording of the Gesualdo 1611 ever (even pipping the Tallis S). In singing quality only James Woods' Berlin choir (tackling a different publication) comes close. Pacing here is perfect, well tuned and not theatrical (it's dramatic enough without going overboard).
Gripping stuff.

Great recording of a repertoire that does not belong to the well known.
