It would be difficult to find a composition that resembles the twelve-part mass Et ecce terrae motus by Antoine Brumel (ca.1460-ca.1520). The almost continuous scoring with twelve voices and its musical effect give this work a unique position in Renaissance music. Brumel made a name for himself in the European music world of the 16th century with this unique experiment. Bjorn Schmelzer and Graindelavoix present here a recording whose artistic uncompromisingness really does have the effect of an earthquake.
