Description:

Europe's foremost exponents of early music perform two of the most important works of the central figure of 16th century Flemish polyphony, Orlando di Lasso. Inspired musicianship, interpretive imagination and ECM's fabled sound quality combine to make this the essential Lassus reference disc for now and for years to come.
