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.

“[Cinquecento's reading is] finely detailed and vocally sure-footed [with a] secure sense of architecture…close attention is rewarded with deepening appreciation.”
26th July 2015
“Cinquecento, pure-toned but never over-polished, are willing to take risks, which gives this ethereal music energy and life.”
“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.”
