I’m afraid I’m not keen on this recording. Pierre de la Rue was a magnificent composer but this doesn’t do justice to his work. The choir sound soulless and unengaged, the balance is poor with very dominant sopranos, intonation isn’t perfect and the overall effect is distant (both geographically and emotionally) and a bit soggy. De la Rue’s deep passion and sometimes slightly edgy settings are smoothed over in a monotonous, rather dull sound.
There are some superb recordings of de la Rue by Amarcord, The Brabant Ensemble, Beauty Farm, Cappella Pratensis, The Clerk’s Group and others. My advice is to try one of them and avoid this.
