Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, December 2014
Its centrepiece is his Mass for the Blessed Virgin...one of Brumel's finest works, in which his tendency to note-spinning is kept in check (as it is in the rest of the music chosen for this recording)...The Brabants have never ventured this early before but on this showing I hope very much that they will do so again.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014
The programme showcases [Brumel's] heterogenous style...and the group's radiant sound - superbly captured in the open, silvery recording - illuminates the multiple texts of this glittering musical mosaic...a fine balance of insightful musicological research and seraphic singing.

The Brabant Ensemble continues their exploration of hidden gems of the Renaissance with an album of music by Antoine Brumel, famous for his 'Earthquake' Mass but otherwise barely known today. Conductor Stephen Rice has assembled an intriguing collection of works including the Missa de beata virgine, a work in which the voices are used almost percussively, making rhythm the driving force of the piece. The Brabant Ensemble's performances here are polished yet light, flexible, expressive and spontaneous, displaying the polyphony in all its glory.
