Notes and Editorial Reviews

If Johannes Tinctoris (1435-1511) is today widely recognized as one of the most renowned music theorists of his time, he was also a perceptive observer of the musical practices of the Renaissance. After studying in Orleans, he held several positions in Cambrai, Liege and finally Naples. Here his gifts as a composer could flourish at the court of King Ferrante of Aragon as a chaplain, legal advisor and music tutor of Ferrante's daughter Beatrice. This programme retraces his career through his extremely varied output: French and Italian songs, Mass movements, and instrumental pieces.

 Enthralling Recording of Rarely Recorded or Perfo September 24, 2017 By Joseph F. (Stamford, CT) See All My Reviews "This CD of the rare music of Johannes Tinctoris is absolutely enthralling. The instrumental and vocal pieces are so beautiful that I have just spent a full week listening to this CD in its entirety every morning. I find it breath taking. The ensemble is first-rate and the sound quality is very natural and immediate. Every devotee of early music should acquire this wonderful recording. You will not be disappointed. As some professional reviews say, "urgently recommended" before it is no longer available." Report Abuse
