Notes & Reviews:
Nicolas Gombert's compositions, all vocal, are for ensembles of up to twelve parts. His contrapuntal language is based on that of Josquin, but increasingly complex. Imitation is used even more consistently than did Josquin, and Gombert's vocal textures are often densely packed, with individual lines characterized by an avoidance of rests. A substantial number of his compositions survive, including ten masses, over 160 motets, 60 secular chansons, and a set of eight Magnificats (one in each mode). The motets on this recording, for 4 - 6 voices, offer fine representations of Gombert's musical style.
