Description
For the past quarter of a century, Anonymous 4 have been at the forefront of medieval revival ensembles. The Washington Post describes these four female singers' performances as "faultless" and "translucent," and other critical superlatives have come in cascades. The varied and complex repertoire of 13th-century polyphony and sacred Latin song heard here was collected for a convent of aristocratic women. In spite of a rule forbidding the singing of polyphony by their order, these sophisticated ladies embraced the most demanding, beautiful, and avant-garde music from all over Gothic Europe. Here are elegant French love motets (retrofitted with holy words); heartfelt laments (like "O monialis conscio," written on the death of a beloved fellow nun); and virtuoso polyphony for the daily Mass ("Kyrie: Rex virginum" and "Gloria: Spiritus et alme"). We also glimpse the musical dedication of the convent in a unique "solfeggio" exercise for the sisters' music lessons.
