Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Jacquet of Mantua is not a household name. Even in the sixteenth century he was routinely mixed up with other composers of similar (or even not-that-similar) names. But his music is quite apart, as this new recording makes abundantly clear: melodic lines of audacious scope and a textural variety rarely equaled make this music a treasurable discovery, and one which The Brabant Ensemble's performances greatly enrich.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2015
Specially edited for this performance, the Missa Surge Petre is lusciously scored for six parts, each of them lucidly etched in this beautifully shaped account... with its striking opposition of resonant, low voices and soaring sopranos, the concluding work, Domine, non secundum peccata nostra, creates a truly ethereal effect, enhanced by the effortless singing of this matchless vocal ensemble.

MusicWeb International, 19th May 2015
This is a real discovery...The performances are all that we have come to expect of The Brabant Ensemble and Stephen Rice...lovers of sixteenth-century polyphony need have no hesitation.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2015
Rice presents a cogent analysis of the reasons for the neglect [of Jacquet of Mantua's music], and the Brabant Ensemble back him up with a very impressive programme, whose centrepiece is a six-voice mass...just as impressive are the motets, ambitious pieces displaying considerable variety.
