these CDs of Orlando di Lasso interesting, but no Job in sight I'm afraid
Yes, welcome back EMS, Skeaping and Bott. We missed you. Just LA-ed both programmes. If the Beeb decides on another saturation week (Heaven forbid) then they could do worse than the very prolific Lassus who was at home in the many and varied compositional styles of his day. The highlight of the Lassus programme was for me the contribution of The Huelgas Ensemble, especially I'vo piangendo a secular Petrarch setting with instruments, Just fabulous. Otherwise the programme had a disproportinately high percentage of choirs with counter-tenors on top. Not that I've anything against C-Ts (!) but the sound was a little unrelieved at times. But then it was Holy Week......
Have a wonderful CD of the Huelgas Ensemble doing a number of 40 part motets including Tallis and Striggio.
Thanks, Roehre. That's another one on my present list (Christmas, that is.)
