Vocal Music (Secular and Sacred) - Released July 2, 2021 | deutsche harmonia mundi
Making the most of the vocal and stylistic near-perfection of his Huelgas Ensemble, Paul van Nevel explores English polyphony between 1300 and 1400. The authors of this late medieval music are unknown, as these pieces have come down to us anonymously, unlike many works on the continent, whose composers are known and often highly revered. But in spite of the anonymity, this material which was written around the time of the Hundred Years' War had a great influence on the music of those distant times. The dozen sacred and secular a capella pieces presented here come from various sources preserved in the United States (New York), England (London, Oxford, Durham) and France (Tours, Chantilly). With their strange chromaticism and extreme, complicated modulations, the composers of Albion paved the way for a new musical style. This new album consists of mostly unknown and unrecorded pieces that add to the knowledge of an era that is still largely undiscovered. © François Hudry/Qobuz
