Notes & Reviews:
With this disc, Giuseppe Maletto and Cantica Symphonia complete their 'Dufay trilogy' on Glossa: two volumes of motets and one of chansons. This release sees Cantica Symphonia traversing all the currently attributed motets by Dufay – works written to set the seal on historic occasions as well as those with liturgical texts. The accompanying essay admirably captures the pervasive fifteenth century currents of Humanism and religious splendor.
Just how fine are the singers on this recording can be gauged from the last track... Cantica Symphonia's performance of his final setting of Ave regina celorum is extraordinarily moving, the personal supplication to Mary seeming almost to catch the composer's last breath.
