Editorial Reviews

Product description

Magnificats 1 à 4 tons avec plainchant (Antiennes pour les premières vêpres de la Toussaint, pour les 18 & 25 décembre, pour les vêpres du samedi précédant le dimanche des Rameaux) / The Tallis Scholars, dir. Peter Phillips

Nicolas Gombert (c. 1495-1560) composed texturally complicated music. If at first it seems murky, its captivating counterpoint--which is almost always polyphonic, without a break for a straight, homophonic line--eventually delights just because of this complexity. These four settings of the Magnificat depend heavily on lower men's voices, making the texture even darker, and the result is rich and velvety. Sometimes Gombert writes for two voices twirling around each other, sometimes for as many as eight. The result is always fascinating, and Tallis Scholars, finely tuned and loving every troublesome dissonance, perform this music as well as we might want. If these pieces, probably composed for the down-in-the-dumps Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, don't exactly make one want to dance, they will certainly interest fans of rich tapestries in music. --Robert Levine
