Well, I just finished listening to the recordings below on Spotify and enjoyed both - my Hogwood CD is just 52 mins in length and has dated sound - found a 'used' copy of Toll on Amazon USA and made a purchase - will replace the Hogwood (just loosing 3-4 pieces and picking up 5).  Thanks again for the suggestions.  Dave :)

 

You’re probably not looking for Gibbons any more, but in case you are, see what you think of this. His frank and lyrical style in this recording - he’s not the most nuanced keyboard player - puts me in mind of Tilney.

I also had much pleasure from the Gibbons-CDs by James Johnstone:

and Laurent Stewart (a CD with works by Gibbons and Byrd):

I just bought a mysterious LP'S set of The netherlands perhaps a set, since shipping was insane for USA, darn but here the vinyl in question not on discogs nor amazon this is a rare



Carlo Gesualdo  on a mysterious setting of Poland not sure of the year it were release?

Perhaps someone know here, and older person from Poland or Slavic country, or whatever this is exiting, don't know what I am getting into but  seem rather old recordings, I'm nostalgic perhaps the 60'' early.

Crossposting from the WAYLT thread:



A significant release since I haven't heard more by German born Johannes Cleeff aka Johannes de Cleve than the motet that is included in volume I of the Leiden Choirbooks, and another motet and a tenor Lied on the recording Renaissance am Rhein by Singer Pur.

Johannes de Cleve was a composer active at the court of Ferdinand I and Charles II. He was presumably born in the Duchy of Cleves, and recruited into the court as a choirboy in the same way as Lassus and many others. He was originally a singer in Ferdinand's chapel in Vienna, but when Charles II organized a new chapel in Graz in 1564, he appointed de Cleve as the first Kapellmeister in Graz.

So, what to make of it?
Johannes de Cleve was not the brightest star in the Franco-Flemish firmament. A small master with a rather conservative style, dense with lots of counterpoint. I think the relative lack of clarity mentioned in some of the reviews is mainly on the composer and not on the performances by Cinquecento. For me the performances by Cinquecento elevate the music to a level that makes it worthwhile. Perhaps a little less polish and blending would have been even better. But overall, as a Franco-Flemish addict, I'm happy to have more by this composer. Nonetheless: not a top priority in Franco-Flemish repertoire or Cinquecento recordings, generally speaking.

Cossposting from the WAYLT tgread:



Cinquecento's 1st Regnart recording was nice, but this is a IMO a significant step up. Cinquecento's strong points have always been their strong ensemble interplay and vocal blending. Here they achieve the sobriety and clarity suited for this music. And the amazing quality of the music makes it worth our while! Wonderfully done, one of their strongest recordings to date IMO. Strongly recommended.

It seems that the ensemble the sound and the fury is still very much alive!

November release, complete with cover in the usual style:



https://frabernardo.com/portfolio-item/ockeghem-2-the-sound-and-the-fury/#tab-id-1

Needless to say that I will ignore the lack of stylish artwork, and will check this out to check for the occasional TSATF gemm....

EDIT:

My mistake to be mislead by Fra Bernardo.... It appears to be a reissue of the recording, previously issued by ORF. 
Also with a ridiculous cover, so not much improvement there.... ;)

Why is Johannes Tinctoris so underrated compared to Ockeghem?

Crossposting from the WAYLT thread:



An ensemble new to me: Franco-Flemish, Belgian based, five singers.  This is their 2nd recording.

The composer is new to me as well, apart from a snippet or two. Some info:

Andreas Pevernage (1542/3–1591) is best remembered today as the choirmaster of Antwerp Cathedral and as the composer of several picture motets that are now classified as masterpieces of Flemish culture. Whilst Pevernage spent his entire professional career in Flanders, which may well have contributed to his music being less well known today, he was nonetheless considered as the equal of Orlandus Lassus, Clemens non Papa and Giaches de Wert during his lifetime: the quality of his music is in no wise inferior to the works of his more famous contemporaries. Pevernage adopted the innovations of the Italian madrigal and also breathed new life into the chansons of the Low Countries. This selection of works, mostly for five parts, is an invitation to discover his stylistic and creative diversity.

I liked the sound and approach of the ensemble, although technically they are OK but not impressive.
The music has the novelty factor, hence the Diapson d'Or "découverte". But perhaps in his time he was seen as an equal to the greatest, but unfortunately he isn't. It's nice, but for Late Renaissance this doesn't have the level of sophistication of Lassus or De Wert.


Perhaps I'll give this another go on Spotify some time, but for now it does not go onto the shopping list.

Baroque I think, becaus of less reliance on strict poyphony and more on the use of a firm bass.

My lack of theory in these matters is shown in my answer, but is is a good question. Is Beethoven a classicist or a romantic? It depends....and it is tempting to answer neither.

I'm inclined to agree, with what little Schütz I've heard, anyway. If Monteverdi is a Baroque composer despite some harmonic flavors that resonate more with those of the Renaissance (yes I'm aware that the term "harmony" does not really apply vis à vis Renaissance music), then so is Schütz.

I know nothing about Lassus, but it may be that some of his music is more renaissance style than baroque, some the other way round. I’d argue that that’s the way it is with Trebaci and Monteverdi.
