Album Notes
The Vox Populi Vocal Ensemble is a mixed-voice a capella chamber choir based in Berkeley, California that specializes in performing the choral music of the Renaissance. Vox Populi formed in 1998 when a motely crew of friends from the UC Berkeley Chamber Chorus decided to combine their musical and culinary talents by singing Thomas Tallis's Lamentations over scrumptuous pot-luck dinners. Since then, Vox Populi has evolved into an established ensemble which takes pleasure in performing this rich musical tradition for the public at churches, museums and concert halls, including the Berkeley Early Music Festivals of 2000 and 2002. We present here some of our favorite works from the repertoire, notably selections from G. P. Palestrina's lush setting of "The Song of Songs", Marian anthems from the late 16th century, and plaintive laments by Josquin Desprez and Christobal Morales.

Peaceful, Majestic, Melodic
This album has a sweet sense of ethereal calm that soothes the soul.

Rob Livingstone

Clear, ethereal, harmonies
From the first notes, I realized that I had purchased a sublime CD. The crystal clear voices, and ethereal harmonies serve equally well as a reverential start to one's morning, or a stress-reducing antidote to a hectic day.

Carl M. Nielsen

Polyphonic Paradise
About four og five years ago I began to get interested in the polyphonic choirmusic from the late middleage and early renneaceance. Since then I've heard a lot of albums in that genre. it's actually quite fare from what I mostly listen to, but in periods this is all I hear. So I know some tittles. Why am I telling this? because this album is the best I've heard in that type of music yet. Vox Populi has superb voices, and handle every note with care. The way they are recorded and produced is exelent too. A sharp, distinct sound that makes is posible to hear all that goes on. Often on such albums the many melody-lines are difficult to find and keep apart from eacother. Either that, or they are to seperate, so they don't blend. "Songs of Love, Lament and Praise" is a supreme production, sounding just perfect.


Voices from the heavens
Wow!! The voices and songs on this CD are gifts from the heavens above. A wonderful collection of late 16th century coral music that will take your soul on an upward journey up to the heavens.
