Notes and Editorial Reviews

'It is a rare thing to reach the end of a long program like this wanting more, yet that's exactly what happened to me in this instance. All readers are urged to investigate a remarkable disc that is assured of being an exceptionally strong contender for the Want List' (Fanfare, USA) 'Robin Blaze has justifiably moved quickly into the elite of counter-tenors. Not only is he convincing vocally but his interpretative instincts are sound' (Cathedral Music) 'In its subtle way this disc will add to our understanding and love of this treasure-house as surely as the first [Sacred Music of Monteverdi] did' (International Review) 'Robin Blaze's clear, pure countertenor is the ideal voice for these pieces, and he sings them with impressive authority. Read more Pick of the month' (BBC Music Magazine) 'I would recommend this disc to anyone with a love for baroque vocal music' (www.musicweb) 'An appealing concert of Venetian sacred music ... as always with Hyperion, gorgeous sound' (Early Music Society News, USA) 'An excellent release' (BBC Music Magazine) 'Blaze is at his most impassioned and convincing ... this disc will add to our understanding and love of this treasure house' (International Record Review) 'The intrinsic qualities of this little-explored repertoire and Blaze's musicianship mark this as an important release' (American Record Guide) Read less
