Gery de Ghersem was a Franco-Flemish composer of the late Renaissance whose works were mostly destroyed in the Lisbon earthquake and fire of 1755. This solitary surviving complete work, Ave Virgo Sanctissima, a mass for 7 voices in polyphonic style. It is based on the "hit" motet of the same name by Guerrero.

Gramophone Magazine

October 2011

“The characteristic turns of Guerrero's motet are everywhere recognisable but Ghersem adds extra voices to the scoring of his model. The work shows off Eric van Nevel's ensemble at its best: an organ is included and the resulting texture often had me thinking that there might be more instruments involved...Ghersem's Mass may seldom be recorded again, so we should be grateful that is has been done so well.”
