Reviews

'A wonderful collection. Lusciously sung sensuous music … a remarkable addition to the distinguished series of records from Gothic Voices' (Gramophone)

'Gothic Voices at its most imaginative. The group's choice of repertory is sublime and the freedom of its interpretation is bracing. Recommended' (BBC Music Magazine)
A number of motet voices survive, detached from the motets to which they belong, and set down as free-standing secular songs. Here we have taken the Motetus of a two-part motet and present it as an independent song, first as it survives in a motet, and then with editorial ornaments based upon what can be deduced about thirteenth-centry ornamentation from musical and theoretical sources.
