Lassus’ five-part setting of the Requiem is rarely heard; here it is recorded with brass for the first time, the sombre colors of the sackbuts further darkening the tone. The recording interweaving a number of motets, some also receiving first recordings, and a madrigal on death by one of Lassus’ contemporaries in an organ transcription prepared for this occasion. This innovative recording thus takes the listener on a spiritual journey, through the darkness of bereavement to the elevation of the Christian soul after death. The booklet notes are by Lassus expert Barbara Eichner and by the conductor of Girton College Choir, Gareth Wilson, who explains the thinking behind the programme.
