French composer Jean Mouton was just slightly younger than Josquin Desprez, to whose music his own a cappella choral pieces bear a superficial resemblance. He never followed his contemporaries into the employ of Italy's powerful families, and it is perhaps because he doesn't fit musicology's prevailing narratives that he has been somewhat under-recorded. His best-known work comes at the end here: the motet Nesciens mater, a dual-choir piece written in canon. The Tallis Scholars, unusually for them, perform that work with one voice to a part. It works in this texturally complex piece, clarifying the counterpoint. Equally exhaustive in its way is the Missa Dictes moy toutes voz pensées, which is based on the three-part song that opens the album and explores every last bit of it in a variety of textures. There are several other motets included, and the whole album holds together very beautifully on a plane of calm balance. The Tallis Scholars do this kind of thing very well, and though there's room for a recording that uses a slightly larger choir (most of the music uses two voices per part), this does make one want to hear more of Mouton's masses. The sonics in the Chapel of Oxford's Merton College are impressively rendered. (James Manheim)

Classical / Choral / Chamber Music

To celebrate Arvo Part's 80th birthday, Gimell presents a new recording of some of the Estonian composer's finest a cappella choral works. This is the first album of contemporary music from The Tallis Scholars since their famous 1984 recording of works by John Tavener. The program here includes several major works including the Magnificat, Sieben Magnificat-Antiphonen, Triodion and I Am the True Vine. The album's title refers to the compositional style Part developed in the 1970s and now employs in most of his works. This simple style was influenced by the composer's mystical experiences with sacred chant. Tintinnabuli works often have a slow and meditative tempo and a minimalist approach to both notation and performance.

“The Missa Corona spinea is a kind of treble concerto, packed with mind-blowing sonorities. If ever there was music to exemplify Shakespeare’s ‘Music of the Spheres’, it is here. The first performance, probably in front of Henry VIII and Cardinal Wolsey, must have been an astonishing occasion.” (Peter Phillips)

"…For those newcomers to this group, suffice it to say that you will rarely find an ensemble as carefully rehearsed or skillfully prepared for the repertory they choose to engage in—simply one of the finest ever, legendary, and there has never been a disc they have released that has gotten less that rave reviews…" ~audiophile-audition

"…For anyone coming to Josquin’s music for the first time this generous compilation is an ideal way to discover his music. However, a word of warning is appropriate: the music is addictive and once you have sampled it in these exquisite performances you may well want to join The Tallis Scholars on their exploration of all Josquin’s Masses." ~musicweb-international

Chant for the First Mass of Christmas according to the Salisbury Rite. It would have been celebrated after midnight on Christmas Eve, and was known as the Missa in gallicantu - the Mass at Cockcrow. The chant has been taken from printed sources which would have been in use when composers such as Tallis and Tye were at the height of their powers…

"As our awards enter their fourth decade, we've paused and looked back over the first 30 years. It's gratifying to see how many of the recordings singled out for the prestigious Record of the Year have gone on to become classics of the catalogue. (…) Then there are the discs that shaped careers - violinists Nigel Kennedy (in Elgar) and Maxim Vengerov (in Prokofiev and Shostakovich) - to which you might add The Tallis Scholars' stunning disc of Masses by Josquin Desprez, a disc that elevated Early Music to the "mainstream". ~Grammophone

"Few things are as satisfying to a choral music fan as spending an hour or two listening to the Tallis Scholars sing the music of William Byrd. A speciality of this ensemble for more than two decades, Byrd's masses, motets, and anthems are among the greatest sacred choral works of Elizabethan England–and thus the late Renaissance–and their beauty and complexity always seem to inspire these singers to a level of expressive effect that most other choirs never achieve…" ~classicstoday
