This new recording from The Sixteen explores the amazing sacred music which emanated from Flanders in the 15th and 16th centuries. This extraordinary music spans 100 years of innovation and brilliance. Featuring arguably the three most celebrated composers from the Franco-Flemish school of the Renaissance - Josquin, Brumel and Lassus - this programme is centred around movements from the staggering 12-part Missa Et ecce terraemotus by Brumel.
"The approach of Harry Christophers is distinctive and revelatory..." BBC Music Magazine
"This virtuoso group can hardly improve on a superb opening performance...their interweaving of plainchant and polyphony soared to the holiest heights of this ancient building." The Observer (London)
