The Brabant Ensemble, Stephen Rice

The Brabant Ensemble, better known for uncovering works by forgotten composers such as Dominique de Phinot, turns to a giant of the Renaissance—perhaps the most celebrated name of the period. Yet within Palestrina’s huge output there are many hidden gems, lacking both recordings and modern performing editions, and it is from among these that the ensemble’s director Stephen Rice has chosen the repertoire for this album. A Mass—Missa Ad coenam Agni, from Palestrina’s first book of Mass-settings—is included, plus antiphons, motets and five Eastertide Offertories. Each work is, as Stephen Rice states in his typically informative booklet notes, ‘a finely crafted addition to the liturgy’.

The Brabant Ensemble brings a matchless blend of musicianship, scholarship and sensitive singing to this glorious music.

“This disc might be renamed 100 Ways to Sing Alleluia, such is the celebratory nature of this collection of Eastertide offertories, antiphons and motets...The spirited Surrexit pastor bonus, its accompanying antiphon Regina caeli and the gradual Haec dies are sung with a full-voiced, beefy intensity that lifts the music away from mere polite polyphony and gives it a really exciting energy” The Observer, 31st March 2013

“[in the Regina coeli] the singers enliven the texture with their nuanced renderings of the marvellous contrapuntal connections, and the recording make the most of the double-choir effects in the final section.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2013 ****
