Erik-Peter Mortensen / Sacred Music in the English Style / The Lamentations of Jeremiah-Part 2: Thomas Tallis
Beautiful workWhat a beautiful and solemn Renaissance work. I hear beautiful voices with skilfull intonation and phrasing, and a fine masterful control of dynamics. This is a work of virtue! Thank you!
SplendidGreat job, beautiful voices, very clear and crispy texture. Admire the cool, precise and yet so expressive interpretation of the Lamentations written by a major Renaissance English master. Splendid!
The Lamentations of Jeremiah: Thomas TallisThis reminds me of the chamber musi sung in the Canticles of the Medieval Church. that would be heard of the Temple Court of Westiminter. I recall Thomas Tallis was a Medieval bard and songwriter in court of King Henry the VIII. The mix of choral vocalists is very impressive and of high caliber. I would give it a 5 if it continued to be a full recording however ths recording is partial and incomplete. I suggest a re-mix. I tried to replay to hear the full recording but it would not replay. So please upload a new recording. If I heard the full version I could compliment the dulcimer or mandolin instrumental.
Bravo!A beautiful performance of a fine, soothing choral work. The polyphonic writing is delightful. New York’s Erik-Peter Mortensen is constantly sharing finely written music performed exquisitely.
Great MusicIn these songs Erik-Peter Mortensen uses the voices with great ability, managing to create music of considerable intensity, music that manages to excite, to make people think. Erik-Peter Mortensen is a technically prepared composer who can be compared with much more famous contemporary authors than him. We hope that in the future Erik-Peter Mortensen will continue to produce valuable music.
