Gramophone Awards 2016 Shortlisted - Early Music

Jacquet of Mantua is not a household name. Even in the sixteenth century he was routinely mixed up with other composers of similar (or even not-that-similar) names. But his music is quite apart, as this new recording makes abundantly clear: melodic lines of audacious scope and a textural variety rarely equalled make this music a treasurable discovery, and one which The Brabant Ensemble’s performances greatly enrich.

Specially edited for this performance, the Missa Surge Petre is lusciously scored for six parts, each of them lucidly etched in this beautifully shaped account…with its striking opposition of resonant, low voices and soaring sopranos, the concluding work, Domine, non secundum peccata nostra, creates a truly ethereal effect, enhanced by the effortless singing of this matchless vocal ensemble. BBC

Rice presents a cogent analysis of the reasons for the neglect [of Jacquet of Mantua's music], and the Brabant Ensemble back him up with a very impressive programme, whose centrepiece is a six-voice mass...just as impressive are the motets, ambitious pieces displaying considerable variety. Gramophone

This is a real discovery...The performances are all that we have come to expect of The Brabant Ensemble and Stephen Rice...lovers of sixteenth-century polyphony need have no hesitation. MusicWeb
