The Vox Cantoris ensemble performs an unpublished Saint Matthew Passion miraculously discovered among the very first French printed music in 1534, composed by Claudin de Sermisy, the greatest French Renaissance master of music.

This liturgical passion offers a remarkable narration of the last hours of the Christ, alternating plain chant and polyphony, without any intervention other than the human voice in all its richness.

Press reviews

La Nef

These polyphonies are of the highest beauty. They are typical of Sermisy in their clarity and the efforts made to keep the text understandable.

It takes all the craft of a truly great composer to manage in such a way diversifying a musical discourse, subject to such a tight constraint. The transparent sound record leaves voices very expressive.

Diapason 4 out of 5

The six singers gather in a carnal sound, that wonderfully restores the sensuality and clarity of the tones.
