JOSQUIN DES PRES
Josquin: Missa Hercules Dux Ferrarie, Missa D'ung aultre amer & Missa Faysant regretz
The Tallis Scholars / Peter Phillips

[ Gimell / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 30 October 2020

'With this ninth and final release in our Josquin Mass cycle we come to three of his greatest works. Although all three Masses come roughly from his early middle age, together they form a perfect showcase for a genius who felt challenged to make each setting different.' - Peter Phillips

GRAMOPHONE Award WINNER 2021 - Early Music

"Who better to navigate such extraordinary music than the masters of tranquillity and clarity themselves, The Tallis Scholars? Their exacting style delineates the distinctive sound world of each Mass while maintaining a consistent sonic beauty...This glossily perfect performance [of Missa Faysant regretz] pings with relish and crackles with energy. A superb end to a magnificent cycle of recordings" Gramophone Editor's Choice November 2020

"The main fascination is the music's ingenious polyphonic weave. The pithy Missa D'ung aultre amer, a touching homage to Ockeghem, comes between. Peter Phillips directs expressive performances." Sunday Times

"Phillips's reading of the Ferrarese work is fluid and supple, and there's a gentle momentum even in the more contemplative sections...The Scholars' sound is lean and clear: every strand of the musical web is beautifully illuminated, and the text is carved with a sculptural sharpness...a mesmerising final chapter to this unforgettable musical odyssey."
BBC Music Award WINNER 2021 - Choral & Recording of the Year
