Label: Warner Classics
Originally recorded in 1980 and 1982, this outstanding reissue brings together a world of authorities on early sacred music using works from two 15th-century masters of transitional cyclic masses. The recording is curious because of the transitional quality of the masses -- both are threads between the medieval and Renaissance periods, written during a period of newly formed interchange between English and continental composers. The sublime recording is emblematic of the Hilliard Ensemble's sensitive understanding of the literature and flawless tonal blending.
