Ockeghem - Missa de Plus en Plus & Chansons


"We've had to wait 450-odd years for a recording of Ockeghem's Mass De plus en plus and three come along at once. This superb recording by the Orlando Consort offers perhaps the most rounded picture of Ockeghem's art. If I am to give a personal preference then it goes to the Orlandos."
—Gramophone Magazine

"Despite the minimal numbers, the Orlando Consort makes a wonderfully rich and sonorous sound, gorgeously recorded in a warm church setting. For a single-disc introduction to this important and re-emerging Renaissance master, this is about the best to be had now".
—American Record Guide

"The four voices of the Orlando Consort are medieval and Renaisance music's equivalent of a fine string quartet. They sing Ockeghem's beautiful De plus en plus Mass as one and with immaculately gauged tuning."
—The Sunday Times

"This is a beuatifully and very sensitively performed disc that rivals any other Ockeghem quincentenary offering, and that's saying something as the field is so rich" —Classic CD

What am I listening to?

You are listening to O tres piteulx / Omnes amici 'Lamentatio sancte matris ecclesie Constantinopolitane', a track from our latest release on Hyperion of music by Guillaume Dufay, one of the most important composers of the fifteenth century. It is a lament on the fall of Constantinople to the Turks in 1453. It's one of the group's favourite pieces, a gentle and affecting piece that features both French and Latin texts, the latter from the Book of Lamentations. You can hear more on the Hyperion website, read the engaging liner notes, and order or download tracks or the entire album in a number of formats.
