Notes and Editorial Reviews



ROGIER Missa Ego sum qui sum. Videntes stellam. Cantantibus organis. Caligaverunt oculi mei. Locutus sum in lingua mea. Laboravi in gemitu meo. Verbum caro David Trendell, dir; Ch of King’s College London HYPERION CDA 67807 (70:48 Text and Translation)


Philippe Rogier (c.1561–96) was the last Flemish maestro at the court of Philip II. The two major recordings until now included Philip Cave’s version of the same Mass and Laboravi in gemitu Read more meo that are heard here ( Fanfare 24:1) and a Ricercar CD not received here. The same motet is also on Jeremy Summerly’s collection of Renaissance masterpices (18:3), one of the earliest significant recordings of his work. Beyond that there is a scattering of single pieces on a few more recent CDs. This is the third Siglo de Oro composer that David Trendell has recorded in succession to Lobo (26:5) and Vivanco (29: 3).


There is a nice symmetry to the program. The bookends are two 12-voice motets, supported by the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble and an organ. They were probably scored more lavishly because they would serve major feast days, Epiphany for Videntes stellam and Christmas for Verbum caro . Before each part of the six-voice Mass (taking Kyrie-Gloria and Sanctus-Benedictus as indivisible) is a six-voice motet, with the longest motet on the disc, Locutus sum , also for six voices, in the center. In the earlier disc, Cave included Gombert’s motet on which the Mass is based, and his vocal ensemble is not as large as the choir heard here. Trendell is probably planning a series of discs with his new label. They should all be executed as well as this one.
