Much-awaited has been the new recording of the Machaut Messe de Nostre Dame from Bjorn Schmelzer and Graindelavoix, one of Glossas long- standing artistic family members. Following on from the trio of discs devoted to music in the spirit of the medieval master draughtsman Villard de Honnecourt the Antwerp-based ensemble currently in residence at the Fondation Royaumont in France has now turned to the first-known composer of an integral mass cycle: Guillaume de Machaut, who was a canon at Reims Cathedral in the fourteenth century. The work, described as a medieval monstre sacre, is performed by an all- male ensemble from Graindelavoix featuring both sharp high tenors and very low basses. Graindelavoixs continuing and vibrantly imaginative aesthetic is described, with his customary imagery, by Bjorn Schmelzer in the accompanying booklet essay, where he says that he is interested in conjuring up the voices of the past, and pointing to the contrast between the familiar and the strange as helping to describe the performance approach taken by Graindelavoix one that emphasizes the individuality of the singers rather than a homogeneous ensemble sound. Schmelzers choice of accompanying Propers for a Lady Mass underscores Machauts own devotion to the Virgin Mary, as do two of the composers spectacular motets, which are also associated with the city of Reims.
