This CD, No. 7 in the Century series, is focused on Ars Subtilior, a further music style that developed in Renaissance sacred music, characterized by rhythmic complexity, changes of metre, syncopations and changes in register. The CD focuses in three areas: Ars Subtilior, 15th Century English sacred music and Franco-Flemish polyphony. As with the whole series, the liner notes are substantial in discussing these styles, their development and history. Liner notes in English and French, no hymn text.
ReviewBy: Benjamin Williams
The quality of the recordings in this series continues, here not only offering representation by little know composers, but also including major names from the Renaissance, such as Dunstable, Dufay, Ockeghem and Busnois. From the perspective of understanding the developmental process and obtaining a representative survey of composers and their work, this series can't be beat.
