I happen to like Renaissance masses and madrigals, such as vocals by Tallis and Lassus. I also happen to like saxophone in my favorite jazz. While the fusion of these two may not sound instinctively appealing, to actually hear The Hilliard Ensemble performing crystal-clear vocals, teamed with Jan Garbarek on alto and tenor sax, is truly electrifying. The songs are wonderful, and the fusion of the two genres is outstandingly appropriate to either genre at a level of harmoniousness I’ve just never heard before.
