Utopia Triumphans – The Great Polyphony of the Renaissance – Huelgas Ensemble

Thus far my brief examination of polychoral music during Tallis’ time has introduced Padovano’s Mass for 24 voices (see: An­nibale Padovano (1527-1575): Mass for 24 Voices | Satur­day Chorale) and Striggio’s Missa Ecco sì beato giorno  (see: Alessandro Striggio (±1537 – 1592): Missa sopra "Ecco si Beato Giorno" | Saturday Chorale).Tallis’ Spem in alium was one of the epitomes of Renaissance era polyphony but as this musical feast presented to us by the Huelgas Ensemble shows it was just one part of a broad spectrum of breathtakingly beautiful polyphony.

  • Thomas Tallis: Spem in alium (à 40)
  • Costanzo Porta: Sanctus (à 13) / Agnus Dei (à 14)
  • Josquin Desprez: Qui habitat (à 24)
  • Johannes Ockeghem: Deo gratias (à 36)
  • Pierre de Manchicourt: Laudate Dominum (à 6)
  • Giovanni Gabrieli: Exaudi me Domine (à 16)
  • Alessandro Striggio: Ecce beatam lucem (à 40)

Enjoy :-).
