This High Definition Surround Recording was Produced, Engineered and Edited by Bert van der Wolf of NortStar Recording Services, using the "High Quality Musical Surround Mastering" Principle.
The basis of this principle is an optimal realistic and holographic, 3 dimensional representation of the musical instruments, voices and recording venue, according to traditional concert practice.
For most historic music this means a frontal representation of the musical performance, nevertheless such that width and depth of the ensemble amd acoustic characteristics of the hall do resemblance "real life" as much as possible.
Some compositions in history, and many contemporary works do specifically ask for placement of musical instruments and voices all over the 360 degrees sound scape however, and in such cases this is also recorded as realistic as possible within the possibilities of the 5.1 Surround Sound standard.
This all requires a very innovative use of all 6 loudspeakers and the use of fully equal and full frequency range loudspeakers for all 5 discrete channels, and a complementary sub-woofer for the ultra low frequencies under 40Hz, is highly recommended to optimally benefit from the sound quality of this recording.

This recording was produced with the use of Sonodore microphones, Avalon Acoustic monitoring, Siltech Mono-Crystal cabling and dCS Converters.

Capella Pratensis / Joshua Rifkin - Vivat Leo! Music for a Medici Pope (2010) {Hybrid-SACD // EAC Rip}

review by James Manheim

This release marks the return of American conductor Joshua Rifkin to the world of Renaissance music performance after a pause of several decades. Rifkin has revolutionized the performance of composers from Bach to Scott Joplin, but here his presentation and performances, with the eight-voice all-male Dutch group Cappella Pratensis, draw on and synthesize recent insights of others. The ensemble is small (maybe too small), the music representative of a specific repertoire, and the booklet devoted to in-depth explorations of how an Italian audience of the early 16th century might have heard these pieces. The works on the album are unified by their inclusion in the so-called Medici Codex, a manuscript given as a wedding present to the nephew of Giovanni de' Medici, who did not let his status as Pope Leo X interfere with his sybaritic lifestyle. The good news was that Leo appreciated music and was even skilled enough to write five-part polyphony on his own; he or his compilers sought out the best music they could find, and the manuscript is a good snapshot of informed taste around 1515. All the pieces are Latin motets except for Josquin's French-language Nymphes des bois, his famous lament on the death of Ockeghem. By this time Josquin had returned to his Wallonian homeland, but his works were already famous enough to be included as greatest hits. Of the other pieces, some intersected with contemporary events: Adrian Willaert's Virgo gloriosa Christi is a prayer to the patron saint of childbirth, and may have been composed to mark the arrival of Leo's nephew's pregnant bride, Princess Madeleine de la Tour d'Auvergne, in Italy. Other works refer to Leo himself, and Rifkin's notes are models of their kind in explaining how a listener of the day would have noted the composer's elegance in accomplishing the task at hand. The music was neither as abstract as was long thought, not as deeply and specifically coded as some would say. It is curious, however, that Rifkin does not discuss the question of why a piece extolling the valor of Leo's great rival, Francis I of France (Jean Mouton's Exalta regine Galliae), should have been included in Leo's own collection. Perhaps he wants the listener to speculate on this, and the album as a whole would serve that goal well. It leaves the listener understanding the Renaissance sacred a cappella repertory better than he or she did before playing it. Strongly recommended. All notes and texts are in English, French, German, and Dutch.
Capella Pratensis / Joshua Rifkin - Vivat Leo! Music for a Medici Pope (2010) {Hybrid-SACD // EAC Rip}

The internationally-acclaimed early music specialist and music director Joshua Rifkin leads the highly regarded choral group Cappella Pratensis, in a recording of music from the court of the Medici Pope Leo X. The disc is being made available as a Hybrid SACD.

Founded in 1987, the Dutch based vocal ensemble Cappella Pratensis champions the music of Josquin Desprez and the polyphonists of the 15th and 16th centuries. The group combines historically informed performance practice with inventive programmes and original interpretations based on scholarly research and artistic insight. As in Josquin’s time, the members of Cappella Pratensis perform from a central music stand, singing from the original mensural notation scored in a large choir book.

Joshua Rifkin’s work as conductor, pianist, and harpsichordist has spanned music from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries. His recordings and concert performances with the Bach Ensemble, which he founded in 1978, set an internationally recognised mark for historically informed and musically vital interpretation of their namesake composer.

Music played a massive part during the time of the Medici pope Leo X, whose tenure covered the years between 1513 and 1521. Much of this has vanished, but a particularly vivid image of Leo’s musical world comes from the so-called Medici Codex, a collection of 53 motets possibly meant at first for Leo’s private use but ultimately presented to his nephew Lorenzo de’ Medici, Duke of Urbino.
