Monteverdi: Missa In Illo Tempore
Odhecaton, Paolo Da Col (direction)
Of all Monteverdi’s works, the Missa in illo tempore marks the most important link between the composer and the Franco-Flemish polyphonic tradition. It is here presented alongside motets by Giaches de Wert, maestro di cappella at the Mantuan court at the time when the young Monteverdi was engaged there as a violinist.
Also included here are world premiere recordings of three recently-discovered Marian motets by Monteverdi that were recorded in the splendid acoustic of the Basilica di Santa Barbara in Mantua.
“Odhecaton is an all-male choir with countertenor on the top line...These are consistently eloquent performances; the sound has an appealingly direct roughness...These are fine performances in a rich tonal palette, from a group worth following.” International Record Review, June 2012
“The choir give strong, well shaped performances and are quite naturally placed within the Santa Barbara acoustic. It has to be admitted that one of the counter-tenors does have a rather prominent voice, but given the disc’s other charms this is something that I can live with.” MusicWeb International, July 2012
