      Even during his life, Adrian Willaert’s Musica Nova collection was shrouded in mystery. The works in the collection were only accessible to a small circle of musicians, theoreticians and patrons. Not until 1559 did Alfonso II of Ferrara make it possible for the collection to be printed, although parts of it had already been composed more than 15 years previously. Willaert’s works are a unique combination of stylistic elements from his Flemish homeland and Italian music, particularly Venetian, not surprising in view of the fact that he was the maestro di cappella of St. Mark’s cathedral from 1527 until his death in 1562. On this CD, the vocal sextet Singer Pur concentrates on the secular part of the Musica Nova, which comprises madrigals composed on texts by Petrarca.
      Singer Pur – the vocal ensemble distinguished with two Echo Classic awards – covers an exceptionally wide range of styles. Along with music from the Renaissance through to the 20th century, its repertoire also encompasses avant-garde music and jazz.
