Orlando Lassus (1532 - 1594) by all accounts seems to have been a colorful character. Throughout his life he outrageously used works with quite frankly erotic overtones as the basis of his sacred works in blatant defiance of the Counter Reformation puritanism whose mood was set by the Council of Trent. However, at the end of his life Lassus suffered a fit of deep depression accompanied by a sudden paroxysm of religious penitence, the result of which was his Lagrime.

This female keyboard trio started in the next line-up: Keiko Kumagai (keyboards), Kyoko Kanazawa (bass) and Akiko Takahashi (drums). In '92 ARS NOVA released their promising debut-album "Fear & Anxiety", a tribute to ELP with floods of powerful Hammond organ and flashing synthesizer solos, supported by a strong and adventurous rhythm-section…

Don’t be put off by the title: this is wonderful music, and all the words indicate is that the pieces can be used in church or court… what you get in these 12 sonatas is the music of gesture: sweeping roulades, folksy melodies, plangent fanfares. Fiercely incisive playing from Ars Antiqua, the six strings led by Gunar Letzbor, and unforced accuracy from the trumpets.

Isfrid Kayser (1712–1771) spent almost his entire life in the Premonstratensian Abbey Marchtal, where he soon gained a reputation as an especially versatile musician. Numerous spiritual organizations commissioned church music or sacred music dramas. As a play of words on his surname (Kaiser = emperor), his confreres soon called him the “Caesar of Music.” His Magnificat and the Missa VI are presented here in a recording together with several smaller works; they document Kayser’s extraordinary accomplishments. These majestically sacred works is interpreted by the Orpheus Vokalensemble and Ars Antiqua Austria under the direction of Jürgen Essl.

Carlo Ambrogio Lonati, a flamboyant character in the Italian violin scene, was born in Milan and moved to Rome at age 25, where he became known as the 'hunchback of the Queen' Christina of Sweden. His stature predestined him as a singer for roles of gnomes and dwarves at the Rome Opera.

Conducted by Paul Hillier since 2003, Denamarks Ars Nova Copenhagen has built an immovable reputation as one of the worlds most versatile and inventive vocal ensembles. First Drop is testament to that spirit; its a wide-ranging and ambitious project that interprets the choral work of some of the giants of contemporary classical music, including Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Louis Andriessen, Michael Gordon, David Lang and more. Almost all the works on this [release] are first recordings, Hilliar explains, referring to one source of inspiration behind the title.
The Nice - Ars Longa Vita Brevis (1969) Immediate/Z12 52020 - US Pressing - LP In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY REPOST

The Nice - Ars Longa Vita Brevis

Label: Immediate/Z12 52020 | Release: 1968 | This Issue: 1969 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Excellent addition to any prog-rock music collection.
It is not possible to overestimate the Nice's importance to Progressive Rock. In their moment, they were prog and if the eye-opening debut Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack didn't show that, this dazzling follow-up did. Sure they're so old and dated you'd never put them on unless alone in the house.
