Lassus: Biographie Musicale Volume V

Lassus l’Européen


Creator omnium Deus

Quid prodest stulto

Sur tous regretz

A ce matin

En m'oyant chanter

O Lucia, miau miau

O d'amarissime onde

Concupiscendo concupiscit

Deus misereatur nostri

Heu mihi Domine

Ecce Maria genuit nobis

Come la cera al foco

Tritt auff den Rigel von der Thür

Cum invocarem exaudibit me

Maria voll Genad

Quis valet eloquio

Quand me souvient

Ô doux parler

Exaltabo te Domine

Domine, quid multiplicati sunt

Vox Luminis, Lionel Meunier

The last of our five-CD series dedicated to “Lasso: a musical biography” is not strictly biographical, but intends to report in all their diversity the immense celebrity of his works, from his beginnings up to posthumous publications, spread by publishers-printers from France, the Netherlands, Italy and Germany.

It ends with one of the only two 12-part compositions written by him, a grand motet for wrapping up this quintuple tribute to the greatest composer of the second half of the sixteenth century.

Performed by Gramophone Recording of the Year winners Vox Luminis, directed by Lionel Meunier.

Gramophone Magazine

February 2016

“Vox Luminis capture Lassus's restrained melancholy very well…but seem less assured when the text turns jocular or louche…their best performances here are highlights of the set as a whole.”
