Missa Tempore Paschali
4.6 out of 5 stars with 192 reviews
Nicolas Gombert may just have been a Bill Clinton-style ''comeback kid'': he died an admired and well-compensated composer of church music despite a scandal that got him briefly sentenced to the galley of a ship. He has been underrepresented on disc, probably because his restless imitative style can sometimes be difficult for nonspecialists to grasp. So Hyperion's series of Gombert recordings is valuable for more than just the lovely performance by Henry's Eight. The highlights of this release

4.2 out of 5 stars with 12 reviews
CD With various record labels compiling complete works to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the death of Bach, EMI's more accessible approach is this luxurious anthology of the Baroque master's sacred music. Over two and a half hours, this program encompasses the grand scale of the Magnificat in D (BWV 243) and Missa Brevis in A (BWV 234). Between these are scared cantatas, the very popular choral Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme (BWV 140) contrasting with sensitive solo vocal writing in

Monteverdi: Musica Sacra /Concerto Italiano * Alessandrini
4.9 out of 5 stars with 217 reviews
This disc isn't just a treat in itself, it's a delicious foretaste of what to expect when Concerto Italiano records the Vespro della Beata Vergine. (Literally: included is a 1615 arrangement, without the instrumental ritornellos, of the 1610 Vespers' ''Dixit Dominus.'') Rinaldo Alessandrini has assembled little-known Psalm-settings (in both the older contrapuntal and the newer concertante styles) and chant antiphons into a Vespers service; he finishes the disc with eight motets for one to six
