O Beate Stanislae
Beata es virgo
Nobis est natus hodie
In natali Domini
Beatus Adalbertus
Per merita sancti Adalberti
Alme presul et beate
Poslan jest od Boha andel
Dies est Laetitiae
Stala se jest vec divna
De Nativitate Domino
Hospodine, Pomiluj Ny
Pisen o Koncilu Kostnickem
Primo Tempore
Svaty Vaclave
Dulce Melos
Salve pater optime
Decet huius cuntis horis

The Rose Ensemble's third recording features music from medieval and Renaissance Poland and Czechoslovakia, including motets from the Prague manuscript Codex Specialnik and several lovely spiritual songs extolling the virtues of various Slavic saints and heroes. The Rose Ensemble, based in Minneapolis/St. Paul, handles this material with great skill and grace. Their vocal tone is bright yet warm, and their articulation is clear and crisp. This is interesting music from a part of the world we've just begun to explore. This music is at once familiar and exotic.
