For the last eight years, Cappella Nova has been singing liturgical music of the Renaissance and the late Middle Ages for New York audiences. Sunday evening at St. Joseph’s church in Greenwich Village the 19-member group and its director, Richard Taruskin, gave their last concert for a while. Cappella Nova is taking a year off and is scheduled to reassemble in the fall of 1984.They will be missed. New York, for all its variegated musical resources, has few vocal ensembles of true excellence. Cappella Nova, in terms of tone, technique, sophistication and seriousness of purpose, has stood consistently above its colleagues, and Sunday’s concert, which centered on Flemish music of the early 16th century, reminded us how satisfying Mr. Taruskin and his singers can be.

The concert was titled ”A Flemish Tribute to the Virgin Mary,” and there was music by Josquin des Prez, Pierre de la Rue, Henricus Isaac, Loyset Compere, and most especially, Jacob Obrecht. The evening centered on Obrecht’s ”Miss Salve Diva Parens,” a work of great beauty and arresting originality. Its music plays with architectural proportions as a mathematician plays with numbers, but one never feels burdened by detail. The Kyrie is full of sinuous rhythmic life and wonderful modulations. The Agnus Dei is blessed with gracefully skipping sequential patterns. And there is one startling harmonic change in the Sanctus that cuts across five centuries of harmonic development in its immediacy.

St. Joseph’s church opens onto the hyperactivity of the lower Avenue of the Americas, and grating street noise and sirens intermittently intruded on Cappella Nova’s beautiful singing. These outside sounds were in one sense disruptive, but in another, they seemed to frame and heighten the serenity and peace of the great music within.
