Reviews

'Stunningly beautiful' (Organists' Review)

'Disco absolutamente recomendable a todos los amigos de la polifonia, qie se encontraran con 73 minutos de buena musica bellamente interpretada' (CD Compact, Spain)
The urgency of the almost madrigalian treatment of the passage ‘transeat a me calix iste’ in the responsory In monte Oliveti, for instance, contrasts dramatically with the stillness of the verse ‘Vigilate, et orate’. In accordance with documented practice at both the royal chapel in Lisbon and Vila Viçosa, the choir is accompanied by the organ.

from notes by Bernadette Nelson 1996
