Early seventeenth century Italy was essentially a Catholic police state and nothing that had anything to do with the Church was left unsupervised. After the Sack of Rome and the Reformation, in Milan as elsewhere in Italy, music was directed to be simple, solemn, and sublime in that order. In response, as this splendid disc by Le Poème Harmonique directed by Vincent Dumestre demonstrates, the composers of Milan dissimulated. Vincenzo Ruffo, maestro di cappella of the Duomo, dropped his elegantly ornate madrigal style and wrote the austerely beautiful Missa Quarti Toni but imbued with the same sense of luminous joy. The Archbishop of Milan told Aquilino Coppini to provide contrafacta -- new words for pre-composed music -- for the glory of the God and Coppini turned in sanctified versions of Monteverdi's erotic madrigals but with the same sense of rapturous ecstasy. The Cardinal from Rome ordered that only fauxbourdon -- "false bass" or two-part harmony -- was to be sung in church and musicians evolved the fauxbourdon into richly ornamented but absolutely lucid and with the same sense of the transcendent bliss. As these sumptuously executed and passionately dedicated performances prove, even the Church could not eliminate spirituality from church music. Alpha's sound, notes, and graphics are, as always, executed at the highest possible level.

Steve Reich in 10 Works

Steve Reich belongs to that very small circle of composers who can claim to have changed the face of contemporary music over the last fifty years. Qobuz presents a selection of ten of the most important works from his catalogue.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

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.
