"The singing is superb, the individual parts easily identifiable yet marvellously blended"

"..the Orlando's finest achievement yet. The Orlandos maintain the unanimity of ensemble one has come to expect of them, matched by an unprecedented brilliance of individual contributions...this recording is a must for collectors, and an ideal place for those who might wish to begin sampling the treasures of the high fifteenth century."

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.
