  1. Lassus is one of those composers who surprises me sometimes with very arresting opening gestures, but the performance is important too. His motet Osculetur me, sung by the Tallis Scholars, has stuck in my memory; sung by others, it didn't have any impact. This choir singing this mass has scored a hit with me. I especially LOVED the opening moments of this mass, as it's sung here. It will be a very 'douce memoire' for a long time!

    Thanks for posting it. I look forward to catching up with the other renaissance treats on your blog.

  2. I'm very glad you like the album so much! Thanks for your reaction.

  3. Hello, Satyr, impressive blog I must say,
    you have shared here with us a treasure trove
    of quite old early music recordings.

    I wish this one in particular could be re-uploaded,
    at you own, best convenience of course. Very curious to listen to it.

    Thanks very much for all the tremendous quality work you've done.
