Notes & Reviews:

The Weser Renaissance ensemble of Bremen dedicates itself to the grand master of polyphony: Desprez. The mass Ave maris stella frames Marian motets in praise of the Blessed Virgin from a time when Marian poetry rich in imagery and tender devotion belonged to the core repertoire of Catholic culture. His source was a poetically colored 9th century Marian hymn in 6 stanzas. A vibrant sound document attesting to a living faith translated into music and transmitted to the senses!

International Record Review
[Manfred Cortes] has blended this collection of very distinctive voices into almost the perfect ensemble for Franco-Flemish polyphony, sounding smooth and luminous but simultaneously finely etched and colourfully varied...A terrific release.
