Reviews

'Unusual music … a rewarding release' (Gramophone)

'Quite simply, it's the most consistently beautiful sung version of the work I know, with exemplary instrumental contributions. If you don't have it already make sure you don't miss it this time round' (Early Music Review)

'This is a real gem' (International Record Review)

'Ces lamentations … méritent assurément le meilleur traitement interprétatif, ce qui es le cas ici' (Telerama)
