This CD, No. 8 in the Century series, focuses on the main body of Renaissance sacred music, and includes most of the composers that come to mind when that term is used. The composition of the polyphonic mass as the musical touchstone of the period, because of its status, beauty and complexity, is discussed and illustrated so that the reader/listener understands how Medieval and Renaissance sacred music began with existing Gregorian melodies. Then, with the addition of a new voice and musical styles, a new sacred form was created . Liner notes in English and French, no hymn text.
ReviewBy: Benjamin Williams
This compilation focuses in three areas: the Franco-Flemish polyphonic mass, the Renaissance motet, and the songs and psalms of the Reformation. The polyphonic mass examples include Desprez, De La Rue, Palestrina and Monteverdi. The motet examples are "the masters," including Desprez, Tallis, De Lassus, Palestrina and Gesualdo. The Reformation examples remind us that the Reformation happened during this time in history, and that great composition took place on the Protestant side of the equation as well. As with the entire series, the quality and content make it a superb value.
