Nesciens Mater composed by Jean Mouton. For Mixed choir. Published by Fennica Gehrman (FG.042-08351-2).
Nesciens mater is an exquisite setting of an antiphon for the Octave of the Nativity, with a tenor voice based on Gregorian melody. It is an undulating tapestry of sonority created, remarkably, by means of a four-voice imitative texture in canon with itself a fifth higher and one bar later. Fazer Editions of Early Music is a choral series under the editorial supervision of Paul Hillier, founder and artistic director of the renowned Hilliard Ensemble. Although each title in this series is the result of careful scholarly research and is a reliable source for musicologists, the series' main purpose is to make practical performing editions available to choirs and other vocal ensembles. The original C clefs have been replaced by G and F clefs and the note values adapted to conform to modern practice. All the works in the series are intended for mixed voices. Each title includes a lengthy introduction in English and notes on the editorial principles. Where necessary, an English translation of the text and a guide to pronunciation are provided.
