Compère: Magnificat, motets & chansons


Compère:

Magnificat primi toni

Tant ay d'ennuy / O vos omnes

Dictes moy toutes voz pensées

Une plaisant fillette ung matin se leva

Vous me faites morir d'envie

Ung franc archier

Ne doibt on prendre quant on donne

Au travail suis sans espoir de confort

Mes pensées ne me lessent une heure

O bone Jesu

The Orlando Consort’s third recording for Hyperion turns to the music of Loyset Compère, a composer the group first investigated some twenty years ago. In the intervening decades musicological goal-post shifting has elevated our composer from also-ran outsider to something of a trailblazer, the wonderfully complex Magnificat recorded here, for example, now being thought to predate the masterworks of Josquin by some fifteen years. A gorgeous selection of motets and chansons further charts this period of radical musical experimentation.

****

“The group seems most at home in the sacred pieces, the Magnificat and O bone Jesu, where their harmonious, 'choral' sound can be put to good use...We owe a debt of gratitude to the Orlando Consort for bringing us this pleasing, interesting and innovative music.”
