HUELGAS ENSEMBLE - THE MUSIC PRINTS OF CHRISTOPHE PLANTIN (CD)

The Huelgas Ensemble conducted by Paul van Nevel has enriched the musical world with one exceptional recording after another featuring works worthy of discovery. Music critics wrote about their latest recording: “The opera by Francesca Caccini has been released on disc as a brilliant and subtly sensitive performance by the famous Huelgas Ensemble. Paul van Nevel stylishly sheds light on the richly colourful, emotion-laden composition.” For this new album, Paul Van Nevel has recorded outstanding works by various composers, whose works were all published by the Franco-Flemish printer-publisher Christophe Plantin (c. 1520–89). One of the most productive and influential members of his craft, Plantin is considered one of the most important printers and publishers of the sixteenth century. In recognition of its historical importance, the museum in Antwerp bearing his name has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005. The extensive library includes religious, humanist and scientific editions as well as musical compositions. The Huelgas Ensemble chose several of the most interesting works for the recording, including music by Andreas Pevernage (1542–91), Jacobus de Kerle (1531–91), Philippus de Monte (1521–1603), Palestrina (c. 1525–94) and also George de la Hèle (1547–86). The album presents works full of musical variety and beauty and provides insight on the compelling heritage of Christophe Plantin.
