Notes and Editorial Reviews
Machaut's extraordinary 'Messe de Nostre Dame' was not only the first complete mass setting in history, but also the first whose composer can be identified, making it emblematic of the Ars Nova style of the 14th century. In this recording, the Orlando Consort performs the mass in parallel with a work by Tarik O'Regan (born in 1978) which was inspired by it. 'Scattered Rhymes' links two texts from the same period as Machaut's mass, one by Petrarch, the other an anonymous English poem. Both of them subtly combine earthly and devine love, while the music blends polyphonic tradition and contemporary inspiration.
