The older brother of the pope has been retired from Regensburg Cathedral for some years, but this program was recorded in 1992, first issued on AM 1092 but not submitted for Read more review here, though his Hassler disc was. It featured the most frequently recorded Mass of Lassus, the eight-voice tribute to Venice. Half of the 10 recordings of that Mass have been sung by men and boys, including a version by this choir under Ratzinger’s predecessor, Hans Schrems. That one used instrumental accompaniment, as did the Westminster Cathedral Choir ( Fanfare 18: 1), but the rest are unaccompanied. The Mass is preceded by four short motets, one of them in four parts, non-liturgical in purpose.


But this is less a program of sacred music than a survey of some of the forms that occupied Lassus. There are three pieces written for state occasions involving the visit of the Emperor. Nunc gaudere is a trifle concerned with schoolboy vacations. The closing group of four Lieder makes fun of the peasants, as the notes put it. For such a short program, probably timed for a radio broadcast, this is a rather diffuse view of the composer’s output, but it is all well executed. The choir is large and the monastic church of St. Emmeram (the usual recording venue) is resonant. The latter part of the program was recorded in a smaller hall at the choir school. The Mass is a good version (the competition is stiff) and the rest of the program is offbeat. Lassus fans will want to hear it.
