Notes & Reviews:

This collection of early music for the Advent season provides a glimpse into the days of anticipation and hope leading up to Christmas during the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Pierre de La Rue spent his professional life serving some of the most influential rulers of that time, and the glorious polyphony of his Missa Conceptio tua celebrates the Immaculate Conception in a manner appropriate to the extravagant liturgy of the Habsburg-Burgundian court. The seven O Antiphons focus on the theme of Jesus's imminent arrival, while the concluding English carols centre on the Virgin Mary's birth of the Christ child. Schola Antiqua of Chicago is a professional vocal ensemble dedicated exclusively to the performance of music from before the year 1600. An ensemble that executes the pre-modern repertory with "sensitivity and style" (Early Music America), Schola Antiqua was founded in 2000 under the artistic leadership of Calvin M. Bower (University of Notre Dame). The ensemble has recorded three albums on the Discantus label (including first recordings of music by Leonin, Du Fay, Guerrero, and Lassus).

David Smith, Presto Classical, 29th November 2014
This collection, featuring the Schola Antiqua of Chicago, takes us back to the sound-world of the late Middle Ages, with plainchant and a lavish Mass by Pierre de la Rue written for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
