Josquin des Prez was unquestionably one of the greatest composers of Renaissance Europe. His works generally fall into one of three principal categories: motets, masses, and chansons. While his masses and chansons are consistently remarkable, it was in his motets that Josquin gave full reign to his creativity. This release featuring Daniel Reuss and Cappella Amsterdam offers a selection of Josquin's secular homages and sacred polyphony, focusing on the title work, a setting of the Miserere, which became a model for many composers that followed.
This is the first of three albums from Cappella Amsterdam devoted to Franco-Flemish masters of the Renaissance. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

I have this in the car CD player and it is just the thing for driving in traffic. Listening to this takes me above the frenzy.
This is a collection of ten motets by Josquin Desprez on the theme of lament and mourning. They are performed here by the fourteen voices of the Cappella Amsterdam, directed by Daniel Reuss.
I had not come across this ensemble until now; but, checking their website, this is probably because they have specialised mainly in 19th- and 20th-century music with, as it turns out, a fair number of recordings already under their belts. Be that as it may they are a very fine ensemble indeed, with a rich, full tone and a satisfying balance giving due weight to the lower voices; these qualities are especially suited to the music chosen for the present disc. Fellow reviewer Sid Nuncius, writing on the Amazon UK website, refers to a certain lack of depth in the performances; I must admit I do not feel this, but would say rather that the emotion in the music is judiciously measured and controlled.
The high quality of both voices and direction is immediately evident in the moving performances of the first two items those named above. Josquin scholar David Fallows considers it more likely to be by Ninot le Petit. Recorded sound, in the Waalse Kerk, Amsterdam, is excellent. Texts and translations are supplied.
It is thus a significant addition to the Josquin discography, illustrating to moving effect his unique contribution to renaissance music. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews.

Please try again. A poet wrote once, roughly, who are we to stand and stare - in this case, who are we to sit and listen to such beautiful music, we are such stuff as are in awe. Beautiful works to just sit somewhere quiet and listen and let such beautiful sounds overwhelm us. One person found this helpful. Good sound, somehow monotonous.

The Miserere , by Josquin des Prez , is a motet setting of Psalm 51 Psalm 50 in the Septuagint numbering for five voices. During the s, the Duke of Ferrara, Ercole I d'Este, kept in close contact with Savonarola, who was also from Ferrara, and supported him in his efforts to reform the Roman Catholic Church. About a dozen letters between the two survive: the Duke sought advice both on spiritual and political matters for example, his alliance with France. After Savonarola's execution, Ercole, then in his eighties, probably commissioned his newly hired composer, Josquin, to write him a musical testament, very likely for performance during Holy Week of It is an extended prayer to the God against whom he believes he has sinned, based closely on Psalm 51, and unified by a boldface-type repetition of the phrase "Miserere mei, Deus" throughout the text.
