5.0 out of 5 stars New piece of treasure March 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Paul van Nevel has once again pleased with release of CD on Harmonia Mundi. With transition to this label The Huelgas Ensemble's sound became even more perfect from the point of view of execution of a stuff and quality of record. First of all it concerns the records of Richafort and de Rore. It is a pity only, that in booklets it is not mentioned neither a place of carrying out of records, nor their producers/engineers.

Concerning Jacobus de Kerle's works it would be a must to note, that this stuff of one of last masters of the Low Countries' Late Renaissance is really worthy to be revivaled from nonexistence, and not only in extracts. For those who has become interested in a similar stuff, I recommend very much also three CDs of Jacobus Vaet which have been recorded down recently by The Dufay Ensemle and released on Ars Misici label.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss it! / ¡No se lo pierdan! March 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This could have been a DISC OF THE YEAR. Why not? Here we've got the opportunity to discover an absurdly neglected GREAT composer. Moreover, the recording itself is an impressive achievement, technically and artistically. Not enough stars!!!


Éste podría haber sido un DISCO DEL AÑO. ¿Por qué no? He aquí la oportunidad de descubrir a un GRAN compositor, absurdamente ignorado hasta ahora. Además, esta grabación constituye un logro impresionante, tanto en lo técnico como en lo artístico. ¡¡¡Me faltan estrellas!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, if not great, polyphony September 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good disc of 16th Century polyphony by yet another obscure composer who turns out to be very good. Kerle was a contemporary and colleague of Phillippus de Monte in Prague, and Paul van Nevel maintains that Kerle is a great master who belongs in the company, of de Monte, Lassus and Clemens non Papa. I have the greatest respect for van Nevel but for me this seems a slightly exaggerated claim. It is true that the music is good and very beautiful in places, but to these ears at least it lacks the real depth and sublime effect of the truly great masters.

Nonetheless, there is a very enjoyable selection here. The centrepiece is a setting of the Requiem Mass, and there are extracts from two other mass settings, three good motets and a madrigal. All show a fine command of polyphonic technique and have some lovely moments. I very much enjoy one or two pieces at a time but as a whole disc it doesn't quite hold me in the way that a disc of Josquin might, for example.

The Huelgas Ensemble are, as always, excellent. They are technically excellent and van Nevel always instils genuine engagement with the text into their performances. He favours a very resonant acoustic which can make the effect a bit blurred and individual lines less distinct than with other ensembles, but it's a lovely overall sound which is very well captured by Harmonia Mundi's recording.

You may not agree with me and find that you do think Kerle's music as great as van Nevel does. Even if you don't, this is a very enjoyable disc of fine polyphony and would certainly recommend giving it a try.
