Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

Most of the material is sung a capella, though a few pieces are accompanied by continuo bass, in the form of Sylvain Bergeron’s theorbo, Karen Kadevarek’s cello and Réjean Poirier’s positive organ. The thirteen voices of the Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal blend well, are attentive to detail and sustain the occasional solo duties very decently. Just occasionally a little more emotional intensity wouldn’t have gone amiss, but all of these performances enable us to enjoy some complex and rewarding music.
The recorded sound has – as it needs to – a generous but focused sense of space, whether heard on a standard
Read more player or an SACD model. Of course, this is one kind of music for which SACD is particularly well suited.
