Album Notes
Maestro di Capella: Music of Elzéar Genet (Carpentras) is the Cheese Lords' first CD, and a world premiere recording.
Elzéar Genet (c. 1470-1548) sang in the papal chapel under Pope Julius II, and thereafter in the court of the French king Louis XII. On November 5, 1513, he became the first composer to be named Master of the Papal Chapel. Working for Pope Leo X, who, in the Medici tradition, was a lavish patron of the arts, Genet's musical output became exclusively sacred. Although Genet was the first composer to publish his collected works, his music has unjustly fallen into near-oblivion. By the late 16th century, Genet's works had been replaced with newer settings by Palestrina and other composers. Sadly, there are no documented performances of his music again until the early 19th century.

“…their interpretive response to the music is skilled. It’s a valuable addition to a discography that is much too short.”
- J. F. Weber on the CD Mæstro di Capella: Music of Elzéar Genet (Carpentras), Fanfare, July/August 2003

“This is an enthusiastic group of singers who, thankfully, go at the music full-throttle. The motet ‘Tibi Christe’ soars, with the singers offering a dose of dramatic pop in the doxology. It’s also a pleasure to hear a ‘Jubilate Deo’ that is truly an expression of unbridled exaltation.”
- Craig Zeichner on the CD Mæstro di Capella: Music of Elzéar Genet (Carpentras), Early Music America, Winter 2003-04

Was beautiful to listen to
Very beautiful music,,,very peaceful to listen...voices and arrangements were great...very impressive and prayerful...

Joseph Firth

I hadn't heard of Carpentras until recently, but the quality of singing here shows that his reputation was well deserved.


Peaceful, soaring, lovely
A wonderful entry in early sacred music. Peacful, uplifiting, beautiful blending of voices. THe closest I've found to a male Anonymous 4.

H.G. Lamont

Another Renaissance master resurrected from undeserved oblivion
This transcendently beautiful recording of the long-forgotten Elzear Genet takes pride of place among my CDs and makes me wonder how many other such wonderful motets and masses are sadly gathering dust in some library. This disc is such a joy that I have not even gotten around to hear the other CDs I ordered at the same time. Top marks to the Cheese Lords.

George Loegel

Wonderful Renaissance Choral Music
The best sacred renaissance choral music conveys the sense of
music as the highest praise of God. This wonderfully spacious recording conveys the sense of wonder and harmony that, to me, characterizes the divine spark of music.

Ellen Micheletti

He who sings prays twice
Whenever I play this CD, I am surrounded by a sense of the Sacred, and a sense of Wonder and Awe as well.
Sublime CD Cheese Lords!
