Description
The creative energy of the Middle Ages is vividly reflected in this polyphonic music from the 12th and 13th centuries, which includes motets both secular and sacred. And the artistry of the "Notre Dame" epoch comes alive once again in this recording, which features a vocal ensemble that includes countertenor Russell Oberlin. The countertenor voice is rare, pitched between tenor and soprano. Oberlin, whose range spanned well over two octaves, once commented that his high, floating tones did not derive from vocal artifice: "I have a naturally high tenor voice which enables me to sing the countertenor repertoire without resorting to the falsetto voice." A founding member of the legendary New York Pro Musica Antiqua, Oberlin sang the role of Oberon in the 1960 premiere of Benjamin Britten's Midsummer Night's Dream at Covent Garden.
