Huelgas Ensemble: La Quinta Essentia

Song NameComposer
Missa "Tous les regretz"Orlando Lassus
Missa "Ave Maria"Thomas Ashewell
Missa Ut re mi fa sol laGiovanni Palestrina

Directed by Peter Van Nevel

For their latest release, Paul Van Nevel and the Huelgas-Ensemble have distilled the quintessence of vocal polyphony. Their spectacular new recording illustrates the dominant styles of the Renaissance as reflected in the Masses by its three greatest masters. The strict counterpoint of the Roman school is evident in the Missa Ut re mi fa sol la by Palestrina (c. 1525-1594); the ripe perfection of the Franco-Flemish school can be heard in the Missa "Tout les regretz" by Roland de Lassus (1532-1594) and the flamboyance of Late Gothic England shines through in the Missa "Ave Maria" by Thomas Ashewell (c. 1478-c. 1513). An entire world recreated in gorgeously vivid sound
