Lassus: Regina coeli

COMPOSERS: Lassus
LABELS: Conifer
WORKS: Regina coeli
PERFORMER: Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge/Richard Marlow
CATALOGUE NO: CDCF 230 DDD
This issue pays tribute to Lassus’s abundant gift for word setting and prolific musical invention, with an intelligent programme that follows the course of the church year, punctuated by different settings of the Marian antiphon Regina coeli. Trinity College Choir’s robust sound is excellently balanced, and equally effective in restrained, devotional pieces, such as the sublime Justorum animae, as in the festive Hodie completi sunt.
