Giovanni Palestrina is one of the giants of late Renaissance music. Probably better known for his religious works he also composed a large number of madrigals. In this genre he may not have been the innovator he was for the church. Nevertheless – or maybe even because of this – his madrigals were much appreciated and (re)printed at the time. This is a recording of the first book of madrigals by Palestrina. They are set for four voices despite the contemporary fashion to employ five parts. Though based in Rome and heavily involved with the church the subject of these madrigals is the usual one: love. Fine lively performances by the singers of Concerto Italiano. With lute accompaniment by Andrea Damiani.

Now it's working fine!

As hateful and usually untrue as most "Best of" collections are, this one is the real thing. You actually do get two hours and 20 minutes of Renaissance music performed so exquisitely, so correctly, and so passionately that it's as if an entire era in music makes itself understood through these CDs. The Tallis Scholars are as good as it gets in this repertoire. In addition to getting Allegri's gorgeous Miserere, you'll find Thomas Tallis's 40-part (40!) Spem in alium, some wonderfully weird and dissonant Responsories by Gesualdo, Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli (the "how-to" piece of the Renaissance popes, who demanded that the words be understood), and various other works. This stuff is like a finely woven tapestry and should be listened to bits at a time–it's amazingly rich and worth it.

Paul van Nevel is unquestionably one of the mainstays among artists who specialize in gothic and Renaissance choral music. Having founded the Huelgas Ensemble in 1971, his catalog of recordings begins in the late '70s when his group was recording for the Belgian labels; one of the few early music specialists from his time still active, van Nevel just gets better and better.

The most ‘profane’ book of the Old Testament was among the favorite biblical texts of the Middle Ages. The composers of the Renaissance made particular use of it as a metaphor of divine love, or in association with the cult of Mary. After their first two extremely successful recordings, the singers of Stile Antico have chosen some of the finest specimens of these musical settings.

The King's Singers have been around for a long time, singing OVPP polyphony, including from the Renassance, and hearing Palestrina done by this ensemble showcases the counterpoint to great advantage. The acoustic is not reverberant which also emphasizes the clear texture. The program includes twelve motets taken from Canticum Canticorum, the much-recorded 1584 collection of texts from the Hebrew Bible (29 motets, altogether adding up to half of the total book), complemented by the four seasonal Marian antiphons sung at the end of the Office every day.

The widely acclaimed vocal ensemble New York Polyphony has on its previous recordings for BIS focused on Franco-Flemish polyphony (endBeginning, BIS1949), the English Renaissance (Times go by Turns, BIS2037) and Christmas (Sing thee Nowell, BIS2099). Each of these discs which have been highly praised by the critics, receiving no less than two Grammy Award nominations has also included contemporary works, resulting in striking resonances between music from across more than half a millennium.
