John Dunstaple

[Winner Gramophone Early Music Award 1996]

"A treasure trove of unfamiliar and little heard masterpieces, this imaginative record is a model of what can be achieved when scholars and performers genuinely collaborate."

"Every moment of the disc is exciting and expressive"

"This new recording by the Orlando Consort demonstrates the magnificence of Dunstaple's music, rich in sound, technically certain, and almost hypnotic in mood. The rhythmic energy and tonal beauty are convincingly realised."
—The Independent

"..this ensemble grows in confidence with every record"

Metronome (MET CD 1009)

What am I listening to?

You are listening to a commemorative motet, ‘Quis dabit capiti meo aquam’, by the composer, Heinrich Isaac (c1450-1517). Specifically, you will hear the last of the four sections of this beautiful piece, a lament on the death of Lorenzo de’ Medici in April 1492. It is one track from our latest disk, The Florentine Renaissance, produced by Hyperion records (DA68349), a rich and varied selection of secular and sacred music, an aural collage of the vibrant city of Florence in the early Renaissance.
