Notes and Editorial Reviews


From the twelfth century to the twenty-first, the voices of The Gesualdo Six weave a meditative reflection around the ancient Offce of Compline in a moving sequence of music from fourteen composers.

-----

REVIEW:

Ingeniously programmed and impeccably delivered, with that undefinable excitement that comes from a group of musicians working absolutely as one, The Gesualdo Six’s ‘Fading’ is startlingly, urgently excellent. The Gesualdo Six are the real deal. Far from fading, they’re just coming into focus.
