de Rore: Anchor que col partire – 2014

A homage to the greatest Flemish composer of the Renaissance ! The works of Cipriano de Rore (1515/16 – 1565) remained extremely popular until well after his death. Several of his madrigals later appeared in dozens of ornamented versions and continued to do so until the beginning of the 17th century; this was an extraordinary success for the time. Ricercar’s leading ensembles of singers and instrumentalists have each made their own original contribution to this recording, providing a complete overview of de Rore’s sacred and secular works. The madrigal Ancor che col partire binds the entire recording together, firstly through the original setting with its erotically charged text and secondly through many instrumental versions that were soon made from it.
