Editorial Reviews

'A sublime blend of voices.' Gramophone

'A thick and rich sound which creates a vivid performance.' The Independent on Sunday

'The performances are guaranteed to refresh even the most jaded palate.' Early Music Review

Magnificat are one of the world's premier vocal ensembles whose recordings have met with huge critical acclaim: Thomas Tallis' Spem in alium was hailed as 'quite the best recording' by Gramophone Magazine and was First Choice in Building A Library on BBC Radio 3's CD Review. In addition their recording of Victoria's Officium Defunctorum was named Critics' Choice by Gramophone Magazine and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its 100 Essential Classical CDs.

Featuring three premiere recordings of newly discovered works: Rogier's motets Domine Dominus noster, Laudate Dominum and Missa Domine in virtute tua.

This recording, celebrating the 450th anniversary of Rogier's birth, is a kaleidoscope of sound, with up to 12 choral parts plus instrumental forces including His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts, organ and harp.

One of the last great renaissance composers, Rogier's music showcases the rich, contrapuntal renaissance style, full of lush textures and colour for which he is renowned.

Directed by Philip Cave, Magnificat specialises in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries.

In association with Linn Records, Magnificat has undertaken many highly successful recording projects of music from The Golden Age', including works by Gesualdo, Guerrero, Josquin, Rebelo, Victoria, Allegri, Tallis, Rogier and Palestrina.

His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts is a group of virtuoso wind players who specialise in playing renaissance and baroque music, bringing historically informed performance to life with style and vitality.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Stephen Midgley on March 8, 2011
Format: Audio CD
Here is a very different side to the multi-faceted genius of Philippe Rogier, from the one heard in the previous disc of his music by this excellent choir Magnificat under Philip Cave. That very fine CD brought us some of his motets and, above all, his beautiful parody mass based on Gombert's motet "Ego sum qui sum", works very much in the Franco-Flemish polyphonic style of Rogier's homeland: Philippe Rogier: Missa Ego sum qui sum

This was a renaissance composer of exceptional brilliance and versatility, whose life was sadly cut short at the age of 35. At 18 he was one of many Franco-Flemish musicians brought to Madrid by King Philip II, and in 1586, when he was still only 25, he had already achieved the remarkable position of maestro de capilla at the Spanish royal court. This career story is important, because it placed Rogier in an especially favourable position to absorb and combine different regional influences in his music. So his work reflects the melodic beauty, ingenuity and polyphonic complexity of his native Flanders, together with the devotional fervour of Iberian sacred music. To these elements are then added the rich sonorities and stately declamation of the new Venetian polychoral style that was developing in his time, and it is these aspects that are especially prominent in the works chosen for the present recording.

The opening triple-choir motet "Domine Dominus noster" clearly demonstrates these qualities, as does the 12-voice Mass of the same name that follows - although this is not a parody mass, just closely related in style.
