Editorial Reviews


Sixteenth-century sacred polyphony has a very different effect when performed a cappella than when done by voices with instruments--or by instruments alone. Controversy has continued for years as to what scoring is appropriate (historically and/or aesthetically) in which setting. On this record, the talented Italian ensemble Delitiæ Musicæ has posited a context--a festal Mass in 16th-century Italy--where different scoring options can be sampled side by side. The Mass ordinary (an attractive setting by Philippe Verdelot) is sung by four soloists; the propers are replaced by motets (common practice in Renaissance Italy) performed by sackbuts and singers in various combinations; the plainchant is sung by a distant choir. Each scoring sounds quite good in its way; the cumulative effect is magnificent. --Matthew Westphal
