Performers Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Orlando Consort's third recording for Hyperion turns to the music of Loyset Compère, a composer the group first investigated some twenty years ago. In the intervening decades musicological research has elevated this composer from also-ran outsider to something of a trailblazer. For example, the wonderfully complex Magnificat recorded here, is now thought to predate the masterworks of Josquin by some fifteen years. A gorgeous selection of motets and chansons further charts this period of radical musical experimentation.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2015
The group seems most at home in the sacred pieces, the Magnificat and O bone Jesu, where their harmonious, 'choral' sound can be put to good use...We owe a debt of gratitude to the Orlando Consort for bringing us this pleasing, interesting and innovative music.
