Reviews

'This superb disc … is the very essence of La Serenissima. Masterly performances, alive with authentic detail' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Excellent. The playing is fluent and exhilarating. An excellent recording. The notes are exemplary' (Classic CD)

'Magnificent. The range of color, breadth and depth of sonority and the majestic nobility of the composer's conception are all revealed in a manner even the most expert of modern brass players could not possibly emulate. A superlative disc and a real credit to everyone involved' (Fanfare, USA)

'L'ensemble anglais est aujourd'hui au sommet de son art' (Répertoire, France)
A symmetrical canzona in three sections, each of which ends with a tripla and a brief, duple-time tutti with the basses moving in sonorous canon. The first and second sections are started by choir one, the third by choir two. The almost carol-like opening tune is answered by choir two playing a more robust, leaping motif, and this discussion of contrasting themes is a feature of the whole canzona.

from notes by Timothy Roberts 1997
