That more or less summarizes our knowledge of Pierre Moulu the man. It's probable that he was French, it's possible that he was associated with various Parisian composers, it's a wild guess that he was a cleric in the diocese of Meaux, but it's certain that he was known to the celebrated composer Jean Mouton, since Mouton included examples of Moulu's work in The Medici Codex of 1518. In fact, some twenty motets, ten chansons and five masses of Moulu's have survived in various manuscripts and printed sources. You'll find his music, especially the motet 'Mater floreat' included on various CDs of Renaissance polyphony, but this is the first CD devoted entirely to him. And it's a fine one! Like a baseball rookie who hits a home run in his first at bat, Pierre Moulu is batting 1000!

Strangely, Moulu's "Missa alma redemptoris mater" has enjoyed a kind of fame among musicologists, both in his own era and in modern times beginning in the 1870s, yet few if any of those musicologists had any occasion to HEAR it. The mass is one of the mathematical wonders of Renaissance polyphony, composed so that it can be performed two ways from the same notation. To sing it in the brief form, the choice on this CD, the singers need to omit all rests of a semibreve or longer. The full form requires the singers to heed those rests; two movements sung in that manner are also included on this CD. Like many intellectually 'challenging' compositions of the Renaissance, this mass provides a solution to the puzzle in the form of a rubric: "Tolle moras placido maneant suspiru cantu" meaning roughly "remove the rests, let the breaths stay calm". But I can assure you that no mere listener, either in 1510 or in 2010, could have perceived the mathematical manipulation in this music!

Format: Audio CD
This is another really good disc from the Brabant Ensemble. They have a mission to explore the work of neglected composers of the early to mid 16th Century and their outstanding previous discs of works by Crecquillon, Phinot and others have shown that there is a wealth of wonderful music of the period waiting to be recorded and this disc is just as good as any they have so far made. Moulu (whose name was completely new to me) is a thoroughly obscure figure from the early 1500s about whom almost nothing is now known but whose work was sufficiently well regarded by his contemporaries to have been included in several printed sources, so some at least has survived. And thank heavens it has, because the two masses, the motet and the responsory offered here are really fine and very beautiful works. They are enhanced here by Stephen Rice's excellent notes, which take the listener into the heart of the music's construction and show what wonderful feats of composition they are.

The singing of the Brabant Ensemble is excellent, as we have now come to expect. They are technically flawless and have a very good blend. Combined with rather a resonant acoustic this creates a full, rich sound in which every part is clearly audible but combines to make a very beautiful whole. They are now widely considered to be among the finest ensembles in this repertoire and they fully live up to that reputation on this disc.

Hyperion's recorded sound is (of course) excellent and the presentation very attractive. It's a cracking recording all round and I recommend it in the warmest terms.
