As sung by the Hilliard Ensemble, there seems to be more rhythmic animation in Power, more uniform elegiac beauty in Dunstable. There is, indeed a certain elegiac sameness in the way the Hilliard Ensemble sings Dunstable; I already had that impression with their Power, but it is even more pronounced here. In any case the music is certainly enrapturing, and fans of late Medieval-early Renaissance English choral music should not miss it.
The Hilliard Ensemble. An entire class of English vocal ensembles, sometimes placed under an "Oxbridge Sound" umbrella, specializes in early music. A fascinating collaboration between the Hilliard Ensemble and jazz saxophonist Jan Garbarek yielded the 1994 Officium, bridging the centuries with esoteric flights of saxophone improvisation above the hyper-resonant landscape of the Hilliard group singing chants and spiritual motets - a musical nexus that nearly defies description. Transeamus, released in late 2014, was the last album the Hilliard Ensemble recorded before retiring at the end of that year, and marked its return to the music of the 15th century.
