Notes & Reviews:

For their third CD on the Challenge label, Cappella Pratensis turns the pages back to the very beginnings of the tradition of settings of the Requiem mass. The Requiems by Johannes Ockeghem (c. 1410 - 1497) and Pierre de la Rue (c. 1452 - 1518) form an ideal pairing, as they are the first polyphonic versions of the Mass for the Dead from the brilliant composers of the Franco-Flemish school. By bringing these two works together, Cappella Pratensis offers the chance to hear the beginnings of one of the great traditions in Western music as well as two profound musical translations of the words of consolation that mark the passing of our fellow travelers in life.
