    Here's a fascinating new release in the early music field: the all-female British group, Musica Secreta, has recorded the newly discovered 'complete' "Lamentations of Jeremiah" by the Franco-Flemish composer, Antoine Brumel. It is surely one of the most important musicological finds or 'rediscoveries' of recent decades. Previously, we had only fragments of Brumel's Lamentations, but now they are complete! The leader of Musica Secreta, Laurie Stras, discovered the scores in a manuscript owned by a Florentine convent. Her group's new recording was released on Nov. 1st by Obsidian Records.

    Here's an interview with Stras (posted on Presto Classical), where she discusses Brumel's Lamentations & her find: https://www.prestomusic.com/classica...s-lamentations

    I first encountered Brumel's music via David Munrow's anthology, "The Art of the Netherlands", and again later with the Tallis Scholars' premiere 1993 recording of Brumel's Missa Et ecce terrae motus (https://www.prestomusic.com/classica...arthquake-mass), which I consider to be a masterpiece of the Franco-Flemish period. My curiosity about Brumel was certainly piqued, however, it's taken a long time for other works by him to get recorded (by New York Polyphony, Speculum Ensemble, The Brabant Ensemble, & The Clerks' Group...). (There have also been two more recordings of Brumel's "Earthquake" Mass, by the Huelgas Ensemble and Ensemble Clément Janequin.) This new recording is an important addition to that growing discography.

    They were giving concerts of this in Brighton this year. I like the sound they make very much, especially the recording dedicated to De Rore’s influence called Dangerous Graces.

    No, I wasn't aware of either release. Thanks for bringing them to my attention! I'm especially keen to hear their Ockeghem release, as I don't believe anyone's done the complete secular songs of Ockeghem since the Davies brothers & the Medieval Ensemble of London back in the 1980s. But I'm eager to hear the De Rore madrigal cycle, too. That's good news. It seems that early music is alive and kicking in Boston these days.

    I have spent some time with the De Rore, less time with the Ockeghem because it was only released a couple of days ago. The De Rore is new to record, it is quite challenging music (in the way that Willaert is challenging) and I suspect my appreciation will improve when I follow the texts in detail. The Ockeghem has at least one experiment in an a cappella rendition, and in pitch and tuning and accent, the style in the Ockeghem is very languid and maybe rather linear.

    The way they project their voices, the sound they make, is very much consistent with what we’ve come to expect in later music. Basically in terms of vocality and sonority they sing De Rore and Ockeghem as if they’re singing Monteverdi and Purcell. The blend of their sound is very rich and seamless.

    There is no complete Ockeghem songs on record apart from the Davies Brothers, as you say. De Rore is very much in fashion at the moment, there have been several new things over the past couple of years.

    Default Bruckner and Berliner Philharmoniker

    IMG_1603.PNG

    Anton Bruckner is a composer with an unmistakable musical language: darkly glowing, overwhelmingly beautiful, but also energetic and innovative. For the Berliner Philharmoniker, this music has been part of their artistic identity for over a hundred years. The orchestra now presents Bruckner’s symphonies in an exclusive edition, recorded over the last ten years together with some of the foremost Bruckner interpreters of our time.

    Bruckner’s symphonies are a universe of immeasurable tonal, expressive, and metaphysical dimensions. It is precisely the changing perspectives of different conductors that make it possible to explore this diverse wealth. The edition is moreover a document of a successful artistic collaboration with highly esteemed partners of many years’ standing: Herbert Blomstedt, Bernard Haitink, Mariss Jansons, Paavo Järvi, Zubin Mehta, Seiji Ozawa, Christian Thielemann and Simon Rattle. The high-quality hardcover edition presents the recordings on nine CDs as well as pure audio and video recordings on Blu-Ray. The extensive booklet contains an essay by the renowned musicologist Richard Taruskin plus portraits of the conductors, introductions to the individual symphonies and numerous photos.
