Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Josquin’s restless, searching intellect is on display in every one of his Mass settings, yet few offer as great a contrast as Missa Gaudeamus and Missa L’ami Baudichon. Can the same man write so diversely? I say genius on this scale knows no rules.” (Peter Phillips)

REVIEW:

The Tallis Scholars allow much light to filter through Josquin’s complex textures and they clearly delight in his beautifully spacious three-part setting of ‘Pleni sunt caeli et terra Gloria tua’. Their sound may have softened slightly with a new generation of singers but it suits Missa Gaudeamus particularly well. This disc is surely one of their best recent releases.
