GRAMOPHONE EDITOR'S CHOICE, MAY 2009

Gramophone Logo

'Stunning … Cinquecento's one-to-a-part approach, with countertenors on the top lines, is ideally suited to this repertory and really works wonders … At telling moments they modulate their delivery to considerable expressive effect … This highly accomplished singing does not draw attention to itself (or at least, not unduly) but focuses attention squarely on the composer. But for his early death, Vaet would have almost certainly emerged as a leading figure of his generation … This deserves to be widely heard.'
