Notes and Editorial Reviews

British chorus master Andrew McAnerney succeeds to the late Christopher Jackson as the new artistic director of the Studio de musique ancienne de Montreal. For his first recording with the Studio, McAnerney has chosen motets by Orlando di Lasso. McAnemey was raised in the British choral tradition and studied music at the University of Oxford. Since graduating, Andrew has enjoyed a varied musical career as a conductor, consort singer, soloist and arranger. In the domain of sacred music, di Lasso's motets are considered more original than his masses. The composer took great care in choosing texts to set, and reflected their rhetoric with perfect conviction. He poured out fresh ideas, managed polyphonic procedures with unmatched ease, and Read more showed an original and generous sense of melody. Some motets on this recording are for 12 voices in two choirs. The Studio de musique ancienne de Montreal consists of 10 to 13 singers chose from the remarkable clarity and purity of their voices. The ensemble is often accompanied by period instruments in performances of Renaissance and Baroque choral masterpieces, and has made 20 widely acclaimed recordings, including several on the ATMA label.
