Notes & Reviews:

Francisco Guerrero was born in 1528 in Seville, Spain. A child prodigy, he was appointed maestro de capilla at Jaen Cathedral at the age of 17. Guerrero was much in demand as both a singer and composer and established an exceptional reputation well before his thirtieth birthday. Unlike most of the Spanish Renaissance composers, Guerrero lived and worked most of his life in Spain and his works remained popular for hundreds of years, especially in cathedrals in Latin America. The main work on this disc is the gloriously sunny and joyful Missa Congratulamini mihi, Motets. Based on an Easter motet by Crecquillion (also recorded here), it is full of the exuberance of the Paschal season. Also included area selection of Easter motets. Voluptuous performances by Andrew Carwood's award-winning Cardinall's Musick shed new light on these rare gems of the Renaissance.

'This latest addition to Guerrero's discography is especially to be welcomed for his fine Mass on a motet by Thomas Crecquillon, in which one hears echoes of the style of Guerrero's near-direct contemporary, Palestrina. Like its model it is a joyful, extrovert piece, to which Andrew Carwood's singers respond with an equal measure of buoyancy and vigour' (Gramophone)

'Since 1989, Andrew Carwood has nurtured the group to its current status as a leading exponent of Renaissance music, retaining the essential quality of individual vocal timbres that contribute to a refined, characterful mix and with a polish that is second to none ... This entire disc is captivating in its fluency and expressive power' (The Daily Telegraph)

'This Mass, beautifully sung by The Cardinall's Musick, reflects Guerrero's soaring style' (The Independent)

The Guardian
All are delivered with the combination of superb ensemble, and perfectly characterised vocal lines that is the persistent hallmark of this outstanding group; the sound is rich, full and gently resonant.

BBC Music Magazine
[Cardinall's Musick] encounters little difficulty in these well-written pieces...the singers are at their balanced best in Guerrero's Ave Maria for double choir, and their confident, perky attack on the rollicking Osanna of the Congratulamini Mass is delightful.
