Missas from French Renaissance composers are rarely recorded, and among them Claude Lejeune is particularly underrated. Nevertheless his music is especially beautiful, made of fresh harmonies and complex rhythms. The interpretation given by the ensemble Sagittarius is here more accurate than the work they have done on Palestrina, so it is easy to say that they serve very well these unknown pieces of music. A great equilibrium between the voices make that CD really pleasant to hear. The voices give a different sound for the interpretation of the psalms, accompanied with violas or a capella. Maybe too much reverb for the recording, but I prefer more precise sound recording.
