Gimell CDGIM 031 Notes (1256 words)
Lobo, who should not be confused with his Portuguese namesake and near-contemporary Duarte Lôbo, is perhaps best known now for his consummate motet Versa est in luctum, recorded here, though in his lifetime he was respected as the equal of the great Victoria himself.
Lobo's style was never purely madrigalian, but a halfway point between it and the calm order of strictly imitative counterpoint.
Lobo's Ave Maria is a masterpiece of a rather different kind from the other motets, being based on a complex canon 8 in 4 at the upper fifth.
