Expedition Audio Recommended
... We know that Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars are supreme in this repertoire. Here, they are well beyond technically polished and expressively fluent, achieving the realm the composer surely imagined. Mouton's tranquil and gorgeous music will be a wonderful discovery for anyone who appreciates the music of this time and space. ... read more ...

When Tallis Scholars conductor Peter Phillips discovered the music of Jean Mouton, he was struck by the composer's unique musical language. Mouton was employed for most of his life at the French courts. His compositions underpin an incredible lyricism and sweetness of tone with music of the utmost in mathematical complexity. This combination was almost unparalleled and led Mouton to be routinely compared with Josquin in his lifetime. The most substantial work on the CD is Mouton's Missa Dictes moy toutes voz pensées. This piece stands out from the composers' other fourteen masses by having an Agnus Dei scored for three basses alone. There is no other music from the Renaissance period that we know of that was scored this way. The disc also includes the motet Quis dabit oculis, written as a funeral motet for his patron Queen Anne of Brittany and a work that stands out for its simplicity.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The major difference between the recordings of Mouton by The Tallis Scholars and The Brabant Ensemble is the latter group's larger ensemble, which allows for both slower tempos and a fuller and richer choral sound. Both of these approaches are reasonable and effective in this repertoire, and neither is better than the other. I would strongly recommend both releases; they offer a balanced sonic portrait of Mouton.
