About this project

Capilla Cayrasco CD: Sacred Music by Ockeghem & Josquin

£3,030

36

Capilla Cayrasco and its artistic director Eligio Luis Quinteiro are planning to record their first CD for Barn Cottage Records, dedicated to sacred music by Johannes Ockeghem & Josquin Desprez, in London in April 2016. We will be recording some of the most beautiful polyphonic works by these two important Renaissance Flemish composers, using a chamber choir of twelve voices. All the members of Capilla Cayrasco are professional singers, specialised in consort / a cappella singing, active with various other early music groups in the UK.

Interestingly, Capilla Cayrasco's recording will include the captivating motets Alma Redemptoris Mater (for 4 voices) by Ockeghem and Inviolata, integra et casta (for 12 voices) by Josquin, performed with the singers, one rebec & one viol - an unusual but colourful combination suggested by contemporary treatiser Johannes Tinctoris for the performance of sacred music. For the recording, we will be using historical Latin pronunciation.

We have prepared fresh new editions of all the music, taking special care of the musica ficta and the text underlay, so often neglected in music of this period.

The funding will help us to pay for the hire of the church, where the recording is taking place, and for the recording engineer's fees.

Capilla Cayrasco y su director Eligio Luis Quinteiro grabarán en Londres en abril de 2016 su primer CD para el sello Barn Cottage Records, dedicado a música sacra de Johannes Ockeghem y Josquin Desprez, famosos compositores flamencos del Renacimiento temprano.

Capilla Cayrasco estará formada por un coro de cámara de doce cantantes especializados en la polifonía del Renacimiento. La grabación incluirá, además, la participación de un rabel y una vihuela de arco, instrumentos que tocarán junto a las voces en los hermosos motetes Alma Redemptoris Mater (a 4 voces) de Ockeghem e Inviolata, integra et casta (a 12 voces) de Josquin -una combinación sonora tan inusual como interesante y rica, sugerida por el tratadista contemporáneo Johannes Tinctoris para la interpretación de música sacra.

Hemos preparado nuevas ediciones de la música, poniendo un cuidado especial en la colocación del texto y la musica ficta, no siempre observadas con esmero.

Pedimos su ayuda para financiar los costes derivados del alquiler de la iglesia donde grabamos y de los honorarios del ingeniero de sonido.

Ofrecemos obsequio de una copia del CD para donaciones a partir de 20 libras (£20). Para donaciones a partir de 50 libras (£50), ofrecemos incluir el nombre del benefactor en el cuadernillo interior de todos los CDs y obsequiarle con una copia firmada por el director artístico. Para donaciones a partir de 70 libras (£70), además de incluir el nombre de el benefactor en el cuadernillo interior de todos los CDs, ofrecemos el envío de una copia del CD firmada por el director artístico y las partituras generales (en PDF) de toda la música grabada.
