"Magnum Mysterium: Advent & Christmas music for lute & voice is our 11th album and our second recording of music for the Christmas season. We have taken inspiration from the evocative Christmas responsory text, ""O magnum mysterium"", presenting four unique polyphonic settings by four different composers, each of them our favorite at any given moment. This album was recorded live over the period 2014-2016 in two of our favorite sacred spaces in Cleveland, Ohio: The Shrine Church of St. Stanislaus, and Immaculate Conception Church. The recording benefits from an absolute minimum of tampering, and bits of the real world filter into our live alternative to the sometimes over-edited sound of early music recordings. The result is real music performed by real artists, and we hope it is received in the same spirit in which it is presented. All of the music on Magnum Mysterium is unique to Mignarda's repertoire and an edition of scores is available from Mignarda Editions."

Ensemble Obsidienne, Emmanuel Bonnardot

This disc follows the musical journey associated with the construction of medieval cathedrals, particularly those of the ecclesiastical province of Sens, France. The repertoire spans several centuries from Gregorian neumes to the polyphony of the Renaissance. Residents of Sens since 2009, Ensemble Obsidienne breathe new life into the Gothic period and restore the ancient sounds of the mass to a modern day audience.

“The singers of Obsidienne try their hand (so to speak) at a number of different styles (including improvised canon); and though possibly not every moment goes to plan, it is fascinating to listen to them thinking aloud. These latter tracks are worth the price of admission…they reconnect us with a crucial facet of mediaeval and Renaissance musicians' practice.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2015

Christmas did not have the same importance in the official ecclesiastical calendar of the Catholic Church in previous centuries as it has today. This CD represents the characteristic of Spanish Christmas songs of the Renaissance, Polyphonic melodies known as “peasant songs” which were predominant in musical manuscripts of the period. Although many of the compositions are by the well known composer ‘Anon’, most were popular tunes of their day. Handel even used one of these carols, Quando nascette nino in the Messiah (1742) in the aria He shall feed his flock.

“Renaissance Spain's 'popular', non-liturgical celebration of Christmas was a distinctly jolly business, if this perky, toe-tapping CD is anything to go by. There is tenderness, too, amid the general buoyancy…” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2009 ****
