Lassus: Missa super Dixit Joseph & motets


Confitemini Domino

Missa super Dixit Joseph

Dixit Joseph undecim fratribus suis

In me transierunt irae tuae

O Mors, quam amara

Deus, Qui Sedes

Si bona suscepimus

Deus, canticum novum

Veni dilecte mi

Fallax gratia

Timor et Tremor

The six sublime singers of Cinquecento have for seven years now been championing the lesser-known masters of the Austrian court. Now they turn to one of the greats: Lassus. The Missa super Dixit Joseph is based on one of Lassus’ own motets and combines the composer’s characteristic flair for vibrant text-setting with the nascent polychoral style of which he would become an early master.

Glorious performances of the Mass and a diverse range of motets comprise a most satisfying album which culminates with the famous Timor et tremor.

Gramophone Magazine

August 2015

“[Cinquecento's reading is] finely detailed and vocally sure-footed [with a] secure sense of architecture…close attention is rewarded with deepening appreciation.”

The Observer

26th July 2015


“Cinquecento, pure-toned but never over-polished, are willing to take risks, which gives this ethereal music energy and life.”

BBC Music Magazine

September 2015

“With just one voice to a part, polyphonic lines are sharply etched and perfectly weighed throughout…an all-male ensemble, their sound is robust and plangent.”
