Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording sets up a surprising confrontation between the radical innovations in singing style for solo voice at the beginning of the 17th century, and those of the second half of the 20th century. Although these two periods differ greatly in sound and aesthetics, each saw a search for new possibilities, and for surprising — even shocking — singing styles. cantoLX is a young professional vocal ensemble based in Luxembourg. The main repertoire consists of Baroque music, but also includes Renaissance, contemporary, and 19th-century music. It is a basic statement of the group to work from a kernel of six soloists, extending to 12 or 16 to form a chamber choir, and developing up to 40 professional singers to form a romantic oratorio choir. Read more Having this regular kernel of soloists guarantees that a very specific sound is present in all formations. Read less
