In this sublime 1993 recording by the Hilliard Ensemble, Lassus' severe Missa pro defunctis and his chromatic Prophetiae Sibyllarum are made thoroughly transparent, completely compelling, and profoundly moving. As in every Hilliard disc, one is continually astounded by the clarity of intonation, the beauty of tone, and the depth of the interpretations. That these four unassuming men can make music so extraordinarily exquisite is almost beyond belief. The Hilliard Ensemble was a British male vocal quartet originally devoted to the performance of early music. The group was named after the Elizabethan miniaturist painter Nicholas Hilliard. Founded in 1974, the group disbanded in 2014. Although most of its work focused on music of the Medieval and Renaissance periods, the Hilliard Ensemble also performed contemporary music, working frequently with the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt and included in its concerts works by John Cage, Gavin Bryars, Giya.

Released: Oct Hilliard Ensemble's Lassus is recorded, as you might expect from ECM, with an enveloping atmosphere of space and reverberation. I am not even going to pretend to be knowledgeable about this music by the 16th-century composer Orlando di Lasso all I can do is say in simple-minded mid-Ohio honesty, gee, it's really pretty and I really like it. Those familiar with previous recordings by the Hilliard Ensemble already know how disciplined yet expressive their voices sound, and with ECM giving them a warm, rich acoustic space, the end result is sonic and musical joy.

The Hillards are extreme competent in performing of such
