The Brabant Ensemble continues its exploration of hidden gems of the Renaissance with an album of music by Antoine Brumel, famous for his ‘Earthquake’ Mass but otherwise barely known today. Conductor Stephen Rice has assembled an intriguing collection of works including the Missa de beata virgine, a work suffused with plainsong but in which the voices are used almost percussively, making rhythm the driving force of the piece. The Christmas motet Nato canunt omnia is one of the most remarkable musical works of the period.

The Brabant Ensemble’s performance is polished yet light, flexible expressive and spontaneous, parading the polyphony in all its glory.

BBC Music Magazine

Christmas 2014

*****

“The programme showcases [Brumel's] heterogenous style...and the group's radiant sound - superbly captured in the open, silvery recording - illuminates the multiple texts of this glittering musical mosaic...a fine balance of insightful musicological research and seraphic singing.”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2014

“Its centrepiece is his Mass for the Blessed Virgin...one of Brumel's finest works, in which his tendency to note-spinning is kept in check (as it is in the rest of the music chosen for this recording)...The Brabants have never ventured this early before but on this showing I hope very much that they will do so again.”
