Notes & Reviews:

The Brabant Ensemble continues their investigation into unknown jewels of the Renaissance, researched by their director Stephen Rice and recorded with equal amounts of passion and erudition by the young singers of the group. Cipriano de Rore was and is principally known as a madrigal composer. This recording presents some of the least well-known works in de Rore's output. It contains two mass settings based on French chansons, Missa a note negre on a composition by Rore himself, and Missa Doulce mémoire, which takes one of the sixteenth century's greatest hits as its inspiration. Also included are three motets. Fratres: Scitote is apparently a unique instance of composition to its text: Saint Paul here tells the story of the Last Supper, in which Jesus takes bread, blesses and distributes it, and thereby institutes the ritual of Holy Communion.

The Guardian, 25th July 2013
It's the three motets between the masses...that make the bigger impression, and show off both the Brabant's care with the weighting of every word and the perfect balance they achieve between the voice parts.

MusicWeb International, 9th September 2013
de Rore's is music of great self-confidence, conviction and beauty...Their singing is remarkably sensitive to the crystalline substance of the music of this era...They are inhabiting it and performing something vibrant and robust. The Brabant Ensemble is also a true ensemble: the singers blend very well in all ways.
