Renaissance composers frequently based sacred works on the melodies of secular songs, which were typically placed in the tenor part as a cantus firmus. The mixing of such elements, as in Josquin's Missa Di dadi and the Missa Une mousse de Biscaye, which were based respectively on the chansons N'aray je jamais mieulx and Une mousse de Biscaye, was common practice in the 15th century. However, Josquin also used images of dice in the tenor part of the Missa Di dadi, which have been interpreted as symbols representing time ratios, indicating the length of notes relative to the other three voices. This arcane notation appears to be a nod to the popularity of dice playing, which was all the rage in Milan in the 1480s, and Josquin seems to have been intrigued enough by the pastime to have used it in this work, possibly as an inside joke to amuse the ruling Sforza family, who were fond of dice. Peter Phillips and the Tallis Scholars have worked out the complexities of this unusual notation system, so listeners will find the music is smoothly sung and the method is well concealed in the transparent counterpoint. This is another in the Tallis Scholars' ongoing series of excellent recordings of Josquin's masses, and the performances are intimate, with two voices per part providing sufficient clarity and balanced ensemble textures. Gimell's recording is close-up, which helps to minimize the resonant acoustics of the Chapel of Merton College, Oxford.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.
