Notes and Editorial Reviews

Alfred Deller was 'discovered' by Michael Tippett, and with the supprt of Tippett, Walter Bergmann and others, re-introduced the countertenor voice to the current music repertoire. His influence cannot be overstated. This CD is a tribute to Deller by musicians who have carried on his tradition in major contributions to music both in Britain and around the globe. Music from the late 17th century to the end of the 20th, of incredible beauty and charm.

“A well conceived album of early and contemporary music. The album by showing both the modern look-back of contemporary composers and some of the revived works gives you a feel for the impact the rise of Deller and the early music movement had last century. It is an absorbing listen,
Read more a nicely performed, even surprising program of affinities and influence. Well-worth hearing and studying in depth!” - Grego Applegate Edwards (Gapplegate Classical Modern Music)
