'It is difficult to imagine more lucid or elegant performances. In a very short time, The Binchois Consort have established themselves as one of the very finest ensembles in the field' (Gramophone)

'Excellent. It is a perfect example of that all-too-rare marriage of first-rate scholarship and high-quality musicianship' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Fascinating' (CDReview)

Regina caeli II
composer
author of text
Antiphon to the Blessed Virgin Mary in Paschal Time

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
After Regina coeli I, the second setting of the same text seems suffused with a kind of quirkiness much more often associated with the composer. Moments of harmonic pungency and rhythmic fitfulness, along with a brief, high passage in fauxbourdon-like parallel motion, pepper a setting which, though lacking the suavity of its companion piece, yields nothing to it in character and inventiveness.
