Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Gothic Voices has, on occasion, presented a rather "hard-edged" sound - perfectly tuned, perfectly enunciated, yet jarring. This recording is no exception, but curiously enough such a sound perfectly matches the sensibility of the medieval motet. The style represents a transitional point, an experimental interlude during which composers tackled a number of unprecedented textures and brought the so-called "ars antiqua" to new heights of intellectual complexity and, in many cases, moving beauty. This music can transport you to another world if it is lent an attentive ear.

The medieval motet was a polyphonic, and often polytextual, composition that consisted of two key components: 1) a tenor, and 2) a number of freely composed upper lines - a motetus, a triplum, and, if the composer was feeling audacious, a quadruplum. Think of the medieval motet as a building. The tenor (whose name derives from the latin "tenere" - "to hold") was the foundation, consisting of a segment of chant that would have been instantly familiar to medieval singers. Laid on top of this "sacred" base were freely composed lines of poetry - songs of love, satire, and veiled allegory. Different texts, in some cases different languages, sung simultaneously. Was it cacophonous? Was it unintelligible? Perhaps. But these terms should be applied carefully. A glorious cacophony would emerge from the simultaneous sounding of clashing consonants, an impenetrable series of sonic layers, all tenuously held together by the repetitive ostinato of the tenor. The result would indeed have been unintelligible to the inexperienced listener, but as with many artistic products of the Middle Ages, intelligibility was not an immediate concern.
