Worcester Fragments

"...a substantial contribution to the corpus of English medieval music available on disc...remarkable..."

"This must be recommended."

Récemment remarqué pour son interpretation fluide et limpide des motets de Phillipe de Vitry, l'Orlando Consort est en passe de conquerir une place de premier rang dans sa défense du répertoire médiéval anglais. Avec la plus parfaite justesse, les chanteurs alternent une émission vocale douce, presque fragile mais pleins de charme, dans les conduits et un débit plus marqué, renforcant le caractère quasi instrumental de leurs timbres..."

"Such a generous and varied sampling, most previously unrecorded, performed by sensitive singers who are both artistic interpreters and sensitive assimilators of the latest musicology............all this adds up to a major contribution to the medieval discography, as well as a fascinating listening experience."

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.
