Reviews & Ratings
The Los Angeles Chamber Singers Quintet, under music director Peter Rutenberg, presents Musica Transalpina, a virtuosic collection of solo madrigals and part-songs from 16th-century Europe for two, three, four and five voices. Featured composers are Thomas Morley, William Byrd, John Wilbye, William Cornysh, John Ward, Clement Janequin, Josquin Des Prez, Claudio Monteverdi, Adriano Banchieri, Orlandus Lassus, Heinrich Isaac, and Hans Leo Hassler. The gamut of period specialties is explored, from standard English and Italian fa-la madrigals, German Lieder and French chansons, to rhapsodic laments, programmatic madrigals and laugh-out-loud humorous confections, all bearing the unmistakable elegance, wit and charm for which the Renaissance is known.
