Dr Jez Wells and Dutch director Henk Schut worked last week with Department of Music Associate Ensemble I Fagiolini, fresh from their release of ‘Amuse-Bouche’ on Decca Classics.
Working in the Trevor Jones Studio, they recorded William Byrd’s seminal (but still rarely performed) masterpiece, Deus venerunt gentes, inspired by the death of Catholic martyrA�Edmund Campion in 1581. The recording is a continuation of I Fagiolini’s Tallis in Wonderland project which aims to break down and reconstruct Renaissance polyphony to allow the listener inside the lines of the music itself.
Director Henk Schut (http://www.artery.nl/ buy zoloft online cheap, buy dapoxetine. )A�is currently making a new installation about political repression and wanted a recording which would allow each line to be heard individually as well as together. This coincided with Dr Wells’ researchA�into new techniques and technologies for precise capture and separation of individual sound sources from a simultaneous ensemble performance, which enables more flexibility in post-production.
