Notes & Reviews:

For seven years now, the six sublime singers of Cinquecento have been championing the lesser-known masters of the Austrian court. On this release, they turn to one of the greats: Lassus. The Missa super Dixit Joseph is based on one of Lassus's own motets and combines the composer's characteristic flair for vibrant text-setting with the nascent polychoral style of which he would become an early master. Glorious performances of the Mass and a diverse range of motets comprise a most satisfying album which culminates with the famous Timor et tremor.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2015
With just one voice to a part, polyphonic lines are sharply etched and perfectly weighed throughout... an all-male ensemble, their sound is robust and plangent.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2015
[Cinquecento's reading is] finely detailed and vocally sure-footed [with a] secure sense of architecture... close attention is rewarded with deepening appreciation.

The Observer, 26th July 2015
Cinquecento, pure-toned but never over-polished, are willing to take risks, which gives this ethereal music energy and life.
