About the album

Under the direction of Peter Schubert, the vocal ensemble VivaVoce returns with a new recording of Renaissance motets based on texts from the Gospels. The pieces on this recording were composed between 1500 and 1564 by the “lost generation” of composers —Willaert, Jachet, Manchicourt and Gombert, and depict various events in the life of Jesus, from birth to crucifixion.

Founded in 1998 in Montreal by Peter Schubert, VivaVoce is a mixed-voice ensemble of very polished singers. They produce a body of sound that seems larger than their 12 voices, but is always clear and precise in all aspects of the singing. The award-winning VivaVoce is committed to performing classical music from all periods and to developing the art of Canadian choral music by commissioning at least one new work each year.
