Jacquet of Mantua (1483-1559)

Missa Surge Petre & motets

The Brabant Ensemble, Stephen Rice (conductor)

« 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. » Hyperion Label
