Several of the composers on this Archiv release – Alonso Lobo, Cristóbal de Morales, perhaps Francisco Guerrero – will be familiar to anyone who has sung in a college glee club. Their short motets, with orderly polyphony that seems to hang in a perfect balance, seem to communicate timeless religious essences. Less common are recordings that situate the music in the Spanish cities where it was composed, and that's not what is here.
