‘... Andrew Nethsingha has produced a recording that reflects both the depth of this choir and the many facets of Lassus's style, from the almost athletic exuberance of his setting of the Christmas song ‘Resonet in laudibus' to the introspective reflection of ‘Timor et tremor'... Another factor that makes this a good recording is the variety created between motets with and without instruments... Nethingha has taken a much more conservative approach that serves these works well and allows Lassus's own creativity to be clearly heard and appreciated in all its sonic splendor.' American Record Guide

‘...With lively support from His majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts, the Choir of St John's College, Cambridge takes full advantage of this treasury of vocal colour with exuberant, full-tones precision and impressive musicality.' The Observer



Lassus was a prolific and versatile composer and the most famous musician of his day. By the age of twenty-one, he had been appointed Director of Music at the church of St John Lateran in Rome, an impressive appointment for one so young. More than 2000 works by Lassus survive: Latin settings of masses, canticles, motets, passions, litanies, and hymns, as well as secular pieces in Italian, French, and German. Lassus was charismatic and gregarious. He was also bipolar, however, a condition that caused him personal unhappiness, but which also accounted for some of the more original and startling passages in his music. The pieces on this recording represent only a small part of his enormous output: nineteen of the 750-odd surviving motets; two of the one hundred Magnificat settings; and three of his dozen purely instrumental works. It is a small sample, but it shows a composer whose formidable technique, kaleidoscopic ear for texture, and matchless word settings made him the darling of the musical High Renaissance in Western Europe.

The majority of Lassus's motets were settings of religious texts. Ecce nunc benedicite Dominum is one of two seven-voice pieces chosen for this recording, and its rich texture allows Lassus to explore appealing vocal combinations without breaking into double-choir cliche. Veni in hortum meum places the listener in the gently seductive world of the Songs of Songs that ‘sensuously exciting and baffling' book of the Bible, to quote the English novelist and poet A S Byatt.

The two Magnificat settings on this recording were composed at least twenty years apart. The Magnificat ‘O che vezzosa aurora' dates from the mid-1580s. A significant proportion of this work is based directly on a six-voice madrigal by the Modenese composer Orazio Vecchi (1550 - 1605), which was published around the same time. Lassus's own setting, however, is sunny and optimistic in six-voice sections, and respectively robust and reflective in the three- and four-voice sections.
