The ear of Christopher Columbus

2019 | Sony Music | Deutsche Harmonia Mundi
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: 88985411772

This recording shows the three musical styles that coloured the aural environment of Christopher Columbus: the lively Italian strophic profane music from the homeland of his childhood; the Spanish love songs, with their unique melancholy, from the court of the Catholic Kings; and the Franco-Flemish virtuosic polyphony that Columbus surely heard during his last years at the Spanish court in Valladolid. The result is a wonderful discovery of the most famous Discoverer, illuminated by the beautiful voices of the Huelgas Ensemble.

The ear of Theodoor Van Loon

2018 | Cypres Records
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: 5 412270 167904

In the artistic landscape of the Southern Netherlands, Theodoor van Loon (1581/82-1649) occupies a unique place, yet his name is virtually unknown to the general public. However, seventeenth-century authors were not sparing with their praise for this painter: 'Apelles of the Netherlands' (Erycius Puteanus 1612); 'Painter of excellent works' (abbot Geldolf van Rijckel 1631); 'A remarkable painter in his day' (Sanderus 1659); '[Painter with] high esteem' (Cornelis de Bie 1662).

Just as twentieth-century artists moved to New York and discovered their very own art scene, van Loon was deeply effected by Italian painting and by his contacts with circles of scholars in Rome, the then capital of art, where he stayed several times. The Eternal City, however, was also the seat of the papal power and van Loon was particularly interested in the avant-garde of post-Tridentine art. Indeed, though his oeuvre may be far less known than that of his rival Peter Paul Rubens, after his return to the Southern Netherlands van Loon played a barely overestimated role in formulating and spreading a modern pictorial aesthetic that could give shape to the spiritual renewal that the Catholic Church had in mind.

This programme highlights the musical environment of van Loon both in Rome and at the Brussels court of Albrecht and Isabella. For the first time, the chaplains in Brussels are assembled together at the time of van Loon: Géry Van Ghersem, Peter Philips, Nicolaus a Kempis, Giuseppe Zamponi and Pedro Rimonte. Van Loon's stay in Rome is illustrated with both works of the then ‘conservative’ style (Francesco Soriano, pupil of Palestrina) and of the new, aspiring class (Mazzocchi). And of special note is the fact that Giuseppe Zamponi was a fellow of van Loon’s in both Rome and Brussels!

The programme that Paul Van Nevel has created for this CD at the request of BOZAR is the ideal listening guide for discovering Theodoor van Loon's oeuvre.

“…The intelligence with which (this recording) has been put together and performed, designed to soundtrack the exhibition of van Loon in Brussels, but far too good to leave just to the art enthusiasts.”
Andrew McGregor, Record Review BBC Radio 3

 

This production came about with the support of the Flemish government.

La liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina

Balletto con prologo a tre scene - Libretto: Ferdinando Saracinelli
First recording of the complete opera including reconstructed instrumental dances

Paul Van Nevel and the Huelgas Ensemble have recorded the first opera ever composed by a woman, an operatic jewel from the early Baroque era.  Van Nevel has revised the score, providing accompaniment for each protagonist with individual colours and reconstructing all instrumental dances.  Above all, he has brought to the fore the polyphonic influence of the Renaissance and the dramatic influence of the Seconda pratica on this opera, revealing the transition from Renaissance to Baroque.  Richly expressive, with vivid recitatives, melodious arias and lively choral interjections, the opera was first performed by the Huelgas Ensemble in 2016 to an enthusiastic reception: "Such is the spell cast by this music that the listener almost forgets that this was once a gala opera for a state visit" (Süddeutsche Zeitung).

The Ear of the Huguenots

2017 | Sony Music | Deutsche Harmonia Mundi
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: 88985411762

The Ear of the Huguenots: Music from the Time of the “St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre”
2017 the Huelgas Ensemble focusses on the great topic of the Reformation, in its anniversary year. 500 years ago the core values of Europe were shaken by profound changes. Changes that were not just of a religious nature but also political and cultural. Old ideals were both questioned and fiercely defended.
In 16th century France the protestant milieu was intensely oppressed. The grisly culmination of this oppression came on the night of the 23rd/24th August 1572 with the St Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, during which thousands of Huguenots were killed in Paris. This extreme act of persecution sent shock waves through the whole of France. Nevertheless, or indeed therefore, the Huguenots developed their very own musical culture.
The programme consists of three parts:
1. Psalm music of the Huguenots for three to eight voices: Psalms by Claude Goudimel (c. 1515 - 1572), Jacques Mauduit (1557 - 1627) and Claude Le Jeune (c. 1530 - 1600).
2. The “Victors’ Response” (with the celebration of a mass!) of Pope Gregory XIII on receiving news of the St Bartholomew’s Day Massacre: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525 - 1594): Agnus Dei from the Missa “Ut re mi fa sol la” (for 6 & 7 voices), together with two pieces from the Roman Lauda repertoire.
3. Secular and sacred music from the Huguenot circle: works by Paschal de l'Estocart (1539 - after 1587),  Jean Servin (c. 1530 - 1596), Guillaume Costeley (c. 1530 - 1606) and Claude Le Jeune.

The mirror of Claudio Monteverdi

2016 | Sony Music | Deutsche Harmonia Mundi
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: 0888751434820

Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) : Missa da Capella a sei voci fatta sopra il motetto in illo tempore del Gomberti

These days we associate the name Claudio Monteverdi largely with the change in style of the early baroque, with its new theatrical approach to composition.  Monteverdi was, however, significantly more versatile, also occupying himself closely with the "prima prattica" - the Franco-Flemish polyphonic composition technique of his predecessors.  One of his key works in this style of composition (proving to his critics that he was also a virtuosic master of the technique) is his Missa da capella, printed by Ricciardo Armandino in 1610.  As the model for this mass Monteverdi chose a motet by one of his predecessors, Nicolas Gombert, who is widely regarded as one of the grand masters of imitative polyphony.  Monteverdi extracts 10 motifs from the aforementioned motet and reworks them into his own imitative web of polyphony.  As a result he avoids unnecessary and dull repetitions, indeed Monteverdi simply takes up where Gombert left off, developing his own motivic structures and sequences.
This programme sees these boundary-breaking mass movements contrasted with the preceding generation of composers, including works by Cesare Tudino (c.1530-1591/92), Nicola Vincentino (1511-1575), Giaches de Wert (1535-1596) and Luca Marenzio (1554-1599).  What one experiences is the fascinating contrast between a "conservative" Monteverdi and his progressive forerunners.

Firminus Caron - Twilight of the Middle Ages

2016 | Sony Music | Deutsche Harmonia Mundi
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: 88875143472

The life of the Franco-Flemish polyphonist Firminus Caron is shrouded in mystery, and we know little about him except that he was probably born in Amiens in around 1440. And yet his works were already famous during his own lifetime and have survived in some of the most important music manuscripts of the second half ot the 15th century, including a number of the Vatican's principal choirbooks.
The Huelgas Ensemble compares and contrasts five movements from the composer's four-part cantus firmus Masses with four secular chansons and in that way provides an impressive demonstration of his exceptional individuality, imagination and variety.

Lisboa Cidade Fado

Catalog #: 88875056162

Fado is the quintessential kind of Portuguese national vocal music.  An outpouring of the soul, it constitutes the musical heartbeat of Lisbon and is as much a part of the capital's dilapidated charm as its creaking trams and ancient house fronts.  The legendary fadista Antonio Rocha is one of the last singers to represent the true fado tradition.  He perfoms in O Faia, the famous atmospheric restaurant in the Bairro Alto, singing about a world of grand emotions and thrilling stories that can be entered even by those who do not speak Portuguese.

Le mystère de 'Malheur me bat'

2015 | Sony Music | Deutsche Harmonia Mundi
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: 8875027132

First the pure facts: Malheur me bat is a three-part rondeau that has survived in more than ten sources dating from the years between 1475 and 1530. It is the most famous example of a work in the Phrygian mode – the third of the eight church modes, the authentic mode on E. Its most striking features are its typical semitone interval from E to F that is often used even in final cadences; the absence of any chords on the fifth degree of the scale, B, as this would produce a tritone, B – F, the famous diabolus in musica; and the mode’s exclusively emotional character, a character described by Heinrich Glarean in 1547 as “religious because it arouses the emotion of plaintive lamentation”, while Gioseffo Zarlino, writing in 1558, claimed that it “makes listeners feel sad”. Other composers and theorists argued along similar lines. So far, so unspectacular. But the mystery already begins with the fact that in the surviving sources this particular work is ascribed to more than one composer. Some of the manuscripts leave the matter unresolved and give us no name at all, whereas others name the composer variously as “Malcort”, “Martini” and “Ockeghem”. In the case of the text, the confusion is even greater, for only the first three words,“Malheur me bat”, appear as an incipit at the start of the superius, while the sources in general leave us in doubt on this question, some of them not including this incipit at all. Essentially, therefore, nothing is known about the content of the rondeau. Crucially, the oldest surviving source, which dates from around 1475, does not have “Malheur me bat” as its incipit but “Dieu d’amors”. In the course of our researches we did not find a single song or poem that begins with one of these incipits. In short, the rondeau has kept its secret. Even more importantly, however, the rondeau is hidden away within works by other composers who have reworked either the superius “Malheur me bat”: a mystery or tenor part or both as a cantus firmus in their own music. These metamorphoses indicate that in its own day Malheur me bat must have been very well known. As for the original words, we have decided to include both Malheur me bat and Ô Dieu d’amours in our programme. Both of them date from the same period and both of them begin with words very close to the original incipits, with the result that they may well express the same idea in terms of their form and content. And yet here, too, no amount of research will ever clarify this matter. The present album sets out to identify the corpus delicti in terms of its complete text and what I can only call the “flight” of the superius and tenor, both of which have found refuge in these metamorphoses.

Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: CYP1673-5412217016739

A treasure-house of the grand master of sixteenth-century musical calligraphy, the choirbooks of Petrus Alamire contain some stupendous and hitherto unpublished polyphonic works. Through the hand of the fantastical humanist that was Alamire – famous as a “guardian of the books” and as a spy within the most influential courts of the Renaissance, including those of Marguerite of Austria in Malines, Henry VIII of England and Charles V – the Huelgas Ensemble and Paul Van Nevel trace a portrait of this brilliant humanist in a programme that will take you to the very heart of the secrets of Renaissance polyphony. From among these gems that are the prestigious choirbooks, the voices of Paul Van Nevel portray The Legacy of Petrus Alamire through the Sanctus and Agnus Dei of such exceptional composers as Sticheler in an echo of the divine Josquin.

La Oreja de Zurbarán

2014 | Cypres Records
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: CYP1669

Francisco de Zurbarán was born in 1598 in Extremadura, but was educated in Seville, a cultural centre that at the time offered exposure to international influences and encounters. In Seville, he developed into a respected painter, receiving commissions from the religious authorities. His reputation gradually spread beyond the borders of Andalusia and reached as far as Madrid, where he was invited to the court of Philip IV.

Once he had completed his royal commissions, Zurbarán moved back to Seville, where he further developed his style. His works very much corresponded to the taste of his time and his success was so great that he even began to export to the New World. Seville, however, was in a downwards spiral; the city, moreover, was struck by an epidemic of bubonic plague. Its population was greatly depleted; orders became less frequent; and aesthetic tastes also changed.

Zurbarán finally returned to Madrid, where he would spend the last years of his life. There, he developed a more intimate, softer style, closer to that of the late baroque. He died there in 1664.

Jacob Clement alias Clemens non Papa was one of the leading Flemish composers of the 16th century.
Although known for his sacred works, he led an extremely dissolute life. But this degree of inspiration that reflects his lively imagination and his virtuoso command of counterpoint, made him the most popular composer of chansons of his generation.

This CD celebrates his 500th anniversary with world premiere recordings of sacred works as well as three of his famous 'Souterliedekens' (Psalter Songs).

La Quinta essentia

2007 | Harmonia Mundi France
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: HMC901922

Paul Van Nevel and the Huelgas-Ensemble have collected the quintessence of a musical art. Their recording illustrates the three dominant styles of the Renaissance: the Roman school, Franco-Flemish polyphony, and English late Gothic. The chosen formal framework is the mass, and three of its greatest masters contribute to the programme: Lassus, ‘counterpoint on a human scale’, Palestrina, ‘the path of transcendence’, and Ashewell, ‘the irresistible appeal of virtuoso ornamentation’. A whole world recreated in sound!

Les sommets de la polyphonie

2006 | Harmonia Mundi France
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: HMC 801954

While the latter half of the sixteenth century saw the first stirrings of the Baroque, this period also witnessed the creation of the finest cathedrals in sound, with their foundations in the distant Gothic era of music . . . Composers vied with each other in daring and ingenuity, presenting works with twelve, sixteen, twenty-four and even, in the case of Tallis's famous Spem in alium, forty different voices! The Huelgas Ensemble celebrates its thirty-fifth anniversary with a spectacular selection of these works.

Alfonso Ferrabosco

2005 | Harmonia Mundi France
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: HMC 901874

Alfonso Ferrabosco (1543-1588) 'Il Padre' has suffered a curious fate: he has long been neglected on record, yet in his own time he was the most eminent representative of a famous Bolognese musical dynasty. After emigrating to England at an early age, he spent most of his life in the service of Elizabeth I, earning the admiration of his peers. Though implicated in some distinctly murky affairs - could he have been a secret agent for the queen? - Ferrabosco was above all a musical genius, capable of equally felicitous expression in the motet, the madrigal or the polyphonic chanson.

Perhaps Jacobus de Kerle (1531/32-1591), contemporary and peer of Orlande de Lassus, Clemens non Papa and Philippe De Monte, needed a tireless pioneer of the calibre of Paul Van Nevel to rediscover him for the 21st century. This master of polyphony, who was active in Flanders, Italy and Germany before finally settling in Prague, left works of timeless beauty - as this CD will prove.

Roland De Lassus

Il Canzoniere di Messer Francesco Petrarca

2004 | Harmonia Mundi France
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: HMC 901828

It was in seeking to set to music the emotions they found in literary texts and poems – imitar le parole – that the madrigalists of the early sixteenth century rediscovered the poetry of Francesco Petrarca. The rich imagery of his language provided the springboard for Orlande de Lassus, in particular, to show his mastery over a period of nearly forty years as one of the greatest composers of madrigals.

The cycle of 125 variations that Constanzo Festa (ca 1490-1545) composed on the 37-note cantus firmus 'La Spagna' is conceived on a scale unique during the Renaissance, and may justly be described as a compositional tour de force. Comparisions with Johann Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations are inevitable. This CD offers a first recording of thirty-two of the variations in instrumental performances using two differently constituted ensembles.

Requiem

Catalog #: HMC 901730

We possess many works by Jean Richafort, but very little biographical information on the composer. In the sixteenth century he was the object of veneration and admiration. The great Ronsard himself spoke of him in the most enthusiastic terms, and most of his contemporaries - Mouton, Morales, Gombert, Palestrina - based Masses on his music.

Cipriano de Rore

Missa Praeter rerum seriem, Madrigaux et motets

Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: HMC 901760

Cipriano de Rore (1516-1565): music as the mirror of the text. The work of de Rore represent a milestone in the art of the renaissance, since for te first time the music and the emotions expressed by the text merge: the music 'is' the emotion and no longer merely a description of it. Or as the musicologist Alfred Einstein put it: "All madrigal music of the 16th century that lays  claim to serious dignity is dependent upon Rore. Lasso and Monte are inconceivable without him."

2001 | Harmonia Mundi France
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: HMC 901739

In this selection of settings by masters like Willaert and de Rore, among others, of the verse of Virgil, Horace and Catullus, Paul Van Nevel offers us, with the subtlety of perception and the rigorous but flexible attention to detail we have come to expect from him, another dazzling excursion into the rich and fascinating by ways of early Renaissance vocal music.

On this CD the Huelgas Ensemble and Paul Van Nevel offer the world premiere recording of this extraordinary mass for 24 voices by Padovano, a composer underestimated today but who was considered in 16th century Italy as "onde of the founders of modern music" (Galilei)...

Christophorus Demantius (1567-1643)

Vespres de Pentecoste

2000 | Harmonia Mundi France
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: HMC 901705

An exact contemporary of Monteverdi (they were born en died in the same years), the Bohemian Christophorus Demantius was a prodigiously inventive composer totally outside the Italian avant-garde movement heralded by his transalpine 'twin'. And yet, paradoxically enough, not unlike Gesualdo (perhaps even more autonomously), he explored new musical avenues with extraordinary ingenuity while remaining attached to the polyphonic style of the Renaissance. In this respect these highly festive 'Whitsun Vespers' are something like a sumptuous transition from the 'old' counterpoint of Lassus and Praetorius to the imminent innovations of Schein and Schütz.

Cypriano De Rore

Passio Domini Nostri Jesu Christi Secundum Johannem

2000 | Deutsche Harmonia Mundi
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: RD7794 + 77429

In his Passion according to St. John, Rore created a masterpiece of plainchant elaboration in polyphony. Unlike other Passion settings of the period, this one sets the entire text, while carefully adhering to the Gregorian recitation tones and structures for the Passion. The syllabic declamation of the text gives a powerful "speaking" effect, while avoiding the madrigalisms Rore is better known for.

Lamentations of the Renaissance

1999 | Harmonia Mundi France
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: HMC 901682

The Tenebrae in music. The heartrending words of the Lamentations of the Prophet Jeremiah have at all times inspired a multitude of musical settings imprinted with a characteristic mixture of pain and hope. It would be wrong to imagine that these famous biblical poems written after the fall of Jerusalem in 586 A.D., with rhythmic verse after verse beginning with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet, were exclusive specialities of the Baroque period. Renaissance composers did not have to wait for the 17th French century Leçons de Ténèbres before consecrating all their art to these Lamentations – an art marked by an extraordinary personal involvement.

Nessun fedel trovai
Chi ad una ad una
Come falda di neve
E non fu il pianto suo
Quel volto
Veduto il miser
E vago d'incontrar
Vattene vita va
O vita troppo rea
A quanti gia felici
Non trovava mia fe
Queste opre e piu
Negando il mio Signor

Cypriot Advent Antiphons

Anonymous ca. 1390

1990 | Deutsche Harmonia Mundi
Conductor: Paul Van Nevel
Catalog #: RD77977

This cycle of "O" Antiphons is part of the Christmas Vespers ceremony, centered around the Magnificat. In the present case, they are heavily troped, and end with a liturgical motet in a more triumphant mood.The music itself it thoroughly isorhythmic, and heavily syncopated. The pieces form a true cycle, linked by both a sequence of modality and motivic figures. This is the most elaborate sacred section of the huge Turin manuscript (Torino, Biblioteca Nazionale, MS J. II 9), the one source for the Cypriot repertory.
