Notes and Editorial Reviews





Michael Noone has spent some time studying the Toledo Codex 25, a badly damaged manuscript copied in 1546 and 1549, and two years ago presented a concert at the Cuenca Festival (27:1) at which he performed for the first time nine sacred works from this source, all but one included on this disc. It was the first public appearance of this vocal ensemble. The publication of an edition followed later that year. Noone?s research attributes 20 of these works to Cristóbal de Morales, 14 of which were previously unknown, and the music on this disc is dated 1545?47, the time of Morales?s tenure there. Three pieces on this disc are taken from two other Toledo manuscripts Read more of the same years, and all are first recordings. The chants used within the polyphony are taken from Toledo chant books made by the same copyist.


The lamentation is the first one for Tenebrae, also set by Ceballos in another disc just heard. Both composers began their settings with the Prolog of the Book of Lamentations, omitted after the Council of Trent. Most of the other pieces are hymns of the Office, alternating chant with polyphony. Unlike Noone?s earlier recordings of Spanish music with ?orchestra,? this disc offers splendid a cappella singing. The recording was made in London last year. The disc certainly enlarges our appreciation of Morales, always regarded as a leading light of El Siglo de Oro.
