Magnificat is one of the world's premier vocal ensembles whose recordings have met with huge critical acclaim: Thomas Tallis' Spem in alium was hailed as quite the best recording by Gramophone Magazine and was First Choice in Building A Library on BBC Radio 3's CD Review. In addition their recording of Victoria's Officium Defunctorum was named Critics' Choice by Gramophone Magazine and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its 100 Essential Classical CDs.
Featuring three premiere recordings of newly discovered works: Rogier's motets Domine Dominus noster, Laudate Dominum and Missa Domine in virtute tua.
This recording, celebrating the 450th anniversary of Rogier's birth, is a kaleidoscope of sound, with up to 12 choral parts plus instrumental forces including His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts, organ and harp.
One of the last great renaissance composers, Rogier's music showcases the rich, contrapuntal renaissance style, full of lush textures and colour for which he is renowned.
Directed by Philip Cave, Magnificat specialises in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries.
In association with Linn Records, Magnificat has undertaken many highly successful recording projects of music from 'The Golden Age', including works by Gesualdo, Guerrero, Josquin, Rebelo, Victoria, Allegri,
Tallis, Rogier and Palestrina.
His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts is a group of virtuoso wind players who specialise in playing renaissance and baroque music, bringing historically informed performance to life with style and vitality.
