Cipriano de Rore (1515-1565): Missa Praeter rerum seriem; Motets; Madrigals / Paul Van Nevel, Huelgas-Ensemble

Conductor Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, 5th January 2015
The performances are outstanding: Van Nevel always pays attention to the text and to every detail in the musical discourse, including the pronunciation which differs dependent on the character of the piece. The intonation is perfect and this is especially important in view of Rore's experiments with harmony.

Like Willaert, Cipriano de Rore was one of the great Flemish composers who spent their entire career in Italy. Although better known for his madrigals, he also wrote a Mass based on a Christmas motet by Josquin Desprez Praeter entitled rerum seriem (Beyond all human understanding, the Virgin Mary conceived the Son of Man). Performed here by the Huelgas-Ensemble, the rare beauty of these works is revealed.
