Obrecht: Missa Rose playsante / Missa Fortuna desperata

Obrecht 1
The Sound and the Fury
ORF 3048

This is another program of very appealing mass cycles by Obrecht. Both are among his most accomplished middle period masses, each with independent points of interest.

The performance by The Sound and the Fury is quite accomplished & satisfying, with both a great sense of coherence and rhythmic energy. It is also good to have an alternative performance style (although they are very similar) to the fine A:N:S Chorus series.

To renaissance sacred list
