Hyperion's November list includes several early music recordings:

Sacred treasures of Christmas
T‎HE LONDON ORATORY SCHOLA CANTORUM
C‎HARLES COLE conductor

A celebration of Christmas from the Nativity through to Candlemas, in music from across sixteenth-century Europe: Renaissance polyphony at its finest.

Sacred motets from the Golden Age
of Spanish polyphony
Sacred treasures of Spain
T‎HE LONDON ORATORY SCHOLA CANTORUM
C‎HARLES COLE conductor

Music to illustrate the Golden Age: a selection of motets from sixteenth-century Spain culminating in Alonso Lobo’s great funerary ode for Philip II, Versa est in luctum.

J‎osquin des Prez
Missa Hercules Dux Ferrarie, Missa D'ung aultre amer & Missa Faysant regretz
T‎HE TALLIS SCHOLARS
P‎ETER PHILLIPS conductor

‘With this ninth and final release in our Josquin Mass cycle we come to three of his greatest works. Although all three Masses come roughly from his early middle age, together they form a perfect showcase for a genius who felt challenged to make each setting different.’ (Peter Phillips)

I bought the latter two of those issues yesterday and have started to work my way through them - so far the Missa Hecules etc and the works by Guerrero. Both albums are beautifully sung though OVPP enthusiasts might find the London Oratory Schola Cantorum rather too opulent.

It was something that popped up on YouTube based on my viewing history - I listen to the music of the troubadours and trouvères quite often. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Vocal Ensemble Cappella are directly influenced by Rebecca Stewart's Modal Singing,  and they are maybe the best example of that style practising today. They are active in Japan, and have some recordings, all of which are hard to get here -- I have their Machaut but nothing else. This is a live performance, with propers, of a mass by Walter Frye. I think it is exceptional.

and Josquin's Pange Lingua, in an empty Japanese church while COVID was ravaging the country

(oooo -- the Josquin's just gone all spiritual in the Gloria!)

Carmina Predulcia on Naxos ensemble Almara, Music From The Schedel Songbook, nothing bad to say about this purchase , but darn it's short, it'S only 36.47 minutes and Naxos sell it at a full price, they could had included another songbook I just don't, but beside this detail, a huge one, I am satisfied whit the result German songs hmm tasty  ;D

 ;D Hello folks , please let me post on this separately because there is an issue here , what do we barely know is what happen in transitional era in between Gregorian an Ars vetus early ''deboire'', sorry I will says it in french because I might get lost in translation let's clarified...

Cher ami(e)s ils ya une zone tampon en plein centre ouu avant Les Ars Vetus qui n'est pas tout a faits des chants Gregorian et ppeenche plus vers le tout debut des Arts vetus hors ont ne sais quedale sur les compositeur du 11(FIN)12(DEBUT) siecle disont cette époque, certains manuscript de chanson seculaire doivent exister ou mais mélanger unpeu aux Gregorian sans en etre biensur en outre cela me semble mysterieux, les historienns ont t'il perdu des documents.

In English I want to know the foggy era(1050--1150) between  Gregorien and ars vetus, mysterious and enigmatic composer I am nerding out on 12th century and also end of 11 century. So what historian think of this era, oddity music that just sound  let's says bizarre for it's era an highly innovative, or foreign Europa perfume music.

I thank you all and want to apologize again and again and again to people may have had offended or disapproved or whatever I hope you understand, I am human if I falter If I was mean or your perceived me as a bad guy, a nasty person, a loose canon, am working on it since  sometime rarely post but when posting something interesting, I hope to God it get publish. So in the end I wish an awesome new year eve to everyone, even my worst enemy If I have any or my worst hater, so all have been said goodbye take care.   ;)

Aren’t elaborate tropes the “zone tampon” you’re looking for? Listen for example to the performances from The Winchester Troper on the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge CD. I think these composers are all anonymous.

What your favorite music of ancient lore Denmark (only have this in download) flac

The second is very interesting since I have it in CD medieval Finland and Sweden vol.2

Vol.3 is about a composer name Wizlav von Rugen, his style remind me of a continuation of Von Reutal, thee logical step.

Yes, a good thought, maybe that's what attracted Marc Lewon -- given that he has made such an excellent Neidhart CD. I must say that I think he is in very fine voice on that Wizlav von Rugen recording.

Entering the bold & colorful world of SOLAGE, here the place to start, Ensemble Gothic Voice, name of the album: The Unknow Lovers songs by Solage and Machaut.

This feature most Solage song's if your starving for more Solage I would warmly subject Solage acoustic guitar rendition and semi acoustic, profige Noel Aktchoté done an album pretty, magical, it capture de sspirit of Solage music, very space in way or transcandent!

Another name Batiste Romain and his ensemble le mirroir de la musique was to me logical step after Solage, both are innovative, both share the same kind of chromatism of ancient lore, Lymburgia's music was insightful.
Music of a curious perfume, never seen afterrr Solage and Lymburgia iiss reminescent of Solage, like if he heard his music or music of his kinds.

Ars Subtilior was medieval music third era the most flamboyant extremelly rich in sounds...

For a more sensual approach to Solage than Gothic Voices, try Tetraktys.
