Loyset Compère

"Discovery of the year goes to the Orlando consort's selection of music by Loyset Compère. This stylish release marks a further step forward in the evolution of this elegant and intelligent ensemble."

"This CD is simply a marvellous addition to the catalogue."
—Musical Times

"..one of the CDs that has given me most pleasure this year was partly my own initiative, the Orlando Consort in music by that magical composer Loyset Compere. It contains music that I have long wanted to hear in a performance that thoroughly suits my taste." David Fallows,

"The Orlando singers deliver lovely, suave, sensitive performances...This is clearly a 'must' for collectors of early music.'

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.
