    Neverless tonight im lisening to guillaume Dufay '' ecce ancilla domini' for 4 voices' and Ockeghem missa pro defunctis for 2 or 4 voices.Great set of cds even if some think of this as average to cheap, i would called it decent overall.So your a newbie to renaissance missa you wont a heatly dose of flemish polyphony there you have it, dont thank me thank brilliant.I wwould like to says i turn off invitation to party tonight and last time, i need peace and quiet moments i guess.
    Great box set.

    Bach Mass in B minor. with Celibidache as usual

    But oh my, I can't move further than Kyrie, it's mesmerizing and I keep listening to it.

    PS
    I realize completely how well we all are acquainted with this work, yet it's mesmerizing as if it's first time listening!

    Yesterday evening BBC4 broadcast live from the Proms, Verdi Requiem with Marin Alsop conducting the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. I hadn't heard any of the soloists before - Tamara Wilson (sop), Alisa Kolosova (mezzo), Michael Fabiano (tenor) and Morris Robinson (bass) - and to my ears the bass was by far the outstanding singer of the night.
    Yet again, this performance reminded me of why this is one of my desert island pieces of music.

    It was very moving indeed, Marin Alsop understood the piece completely and the conducting was never vulgar.

    Johannes Ockeghem the motet Intermerata Dei mater is the highlight imo.

    I'm joking of course while you repeating the same piece over and over.

    right, right, that's what I was doing "Ky---ri-e e-lei---son" and it's something obsessive about it ....

    I am listening to Bach's Mass in B Minor right now also, just moments before I continue composing my own Mass, a work I wanted to be seperate from my Requiem.

    Brumel sung by a splendid Belgian choir,it is a great joy to drift along the chorus lines and to be part of it.
