Richafort: Requiem – The King’s Singers, David Skinner

Few composers of any age have enjoyed the widespread admiration and unanimous praise of successive generations as Josquin des Prez. He is considered the greatest creator and innovator of musical composition during the Renaissance, and for half a millennium his music has stood the test of time. He is remembered as much for his own works as for his lasting influence on his contemporaries and students, demonstrated in many of the compositions written in tribute of ‘the master’ featured in this programme. The programme’s centrepiece is Jean Richafort’s Requiem mass (Missa pro defunctis), a tribute that employs several of Josquin’s compositional devices. The King’s Singers once again demonstrate their versatility and trademark precision in this new programme devised by the leading early-music scholar and conductor David Skinner.



                        **** (Excellent disc)

Guillaume Bunel - Classica magazine (France) - September 2013


 "...The tranquil, refined, passionate-when-required singing of The King’s Singers is exemplary, beautifully balanced and phrased ... the recording places it all in perfect perspective." *****

Rebecca Tavener - Early Music Today magazine - September-November 2013


                   Performance ****      Recording *****

"... this is music of high seriousness heard in performances of the highest order."

Kate Bolton - BBC Music magazine - August 2013


 "... Masterly programming amd masterly singing."

D James Ross - Early Music Review - June 2013


 "The centrepiece is Jean Richaford’s Requiem, with flowing counterpoint spiced by rich dissonances. But the most astonishing work is Jacquet de Mantua’s Dum vastos, weaving together five Josquin ’hits’." ****

 
Richard Morrison - The Times - April 2013

 "All the Kings’ Singers’ performances are admirably manicured" **** 

 
Andrew Clements - The Guardian - April 2013
