Notes and Editorial Reviews



An intoxicating blend of voices makes the Stabat mater a profound experience

"Sheer joy in music-making is as evident here as the sense of piety required by what are, after all, holy works. Yet it is difficult to begrudge Vox Luminis some feeling of joy at the astonishing sounds they are able to produce. The spirit of devotion is very much alive here too, in an album that pays equal attention to the holy and to the heady." -- Gramophone [4/2008]
