Notes & Reviews:

The vocal sextet Cinquecento are rapidly becoming one of the most admired early music ensembles recording today. This latest release presents the music of Jacobus Vaet. Vaet would undoubtedly be among the best-known composers of the sixteenth century had he not died at the age of about thirty-seven. In his short career Vaet produced, among other things, nine settings of the mass. His 'Missa Ego flos campi', a parody mass on an extraordinary motet by Clemens non Papa (also on the disc), is a notable example of his particular artistry. A fascinating selection of motets also demonstrates the composer's vivid approach to word-setting and imaginative choice of texts.

'Stunning ... Cinquecento's one-to-a-part approach, with countertenors on the top lines, is ideally suited to this repertory and really works wonders ... At telling moments they modulate their delivery to considerable expressive effect ... This highly accomplished singing does not draw attention to itself (or at least, not unduly but focuses attention squarely on the composer. But for his early death, Vaet would have almost certainly emerged as a leading figure of his generation ... This deserves to be widely heard' (Gramophone)

'[Spiritus Domini] A delicious feast of harmonic tension and inwardly-sensed architecture. Other gems include the expressive Miserere mei and a brilliant Salve Regina' (BBC Music Magazine)
