Alleluia Nativitas

 

"The Orlando Consort's gusto is irresistible. You will be rewarded by this intelligent anthology, which no collector of early music can afford to miss"
—American Record Guide

"La grand qualité de l'interprétation vient avant tout de soin extrême apporté à la vitalité interne des compositions: choix de tempos allants, pureté et la précision de la diction, égalité des voix, technique parfaite d'échange de lignes mélodiques........ L'austérité que l'on craint souvent... devient ici authenticité religieuse, dont la modernité est intrinsiquement liée à la simplicité de l'exécution, et à la fusion totale des quatres chanteurs. Remarquable."
—Repertoire des Disques Compacts

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.
