0 Comments Gloria Patri, Dartmouth Magnificat
Posted by voceschoral on January 30, 2011 at 10:11 AM

The final section of the 15th-century Dartmouth Magnificat (anon), from the CD Plainsong and Polyphony by Voces, directed by Martyn Warren.

I regard this recording as work in progress - there are so many questions about performance practice, not least pitch.  We sing it close to 'written' pitch rather than transposing down a fourth or fifth in recognition of the high clefs.  The result is much brighter than it would otherwise be, but puts strain on the treble line.  Next time a compromise between the two, perhaps.
