Rarely heard, early settings of Marian texts: following their acclaimed albums 'Byrd' and 'Passion', the Vienna Vocal Consort now release their third production with Klanglogo. The starting point and centre-piece in the ensemble's journey through music history is Guillaume de Machaut's epochal 'Messe de Nostre Dame' - the first complete polyphonic setting of a Mass ordinary, dating to 1360. This work is recorded alongside a grand Magnificat by the great Franco-Flemish composer Pierre de la Rue, and other Marian settings by Dufay, Josquin des Prez, Palestrina, and Gesualdo.
