Label: Hyperion
Catalog: CDA68369
Format: CD


With the Missa Christ ist erstanden and other sacred works by Jacob Regnart, the vocal ensemble Cinquecento once again turns to one of the lesser known Flemish composers. Regnart worked at the Habsburg courts in Prague and Innsbruck. In a letter of recommendation, Orlando di Lasso described his music as "excellent". A judgement that is completely confirmed here. Read more Two substantial Mass settings from Jacob Regnart, sound as though might have written them specifically for the glorious voices of Cinquecento. This is a welcome contribution to the restoration of an important, but still under-appreciated, figure.
