Notes and Editorial Reviews

The German countertenor Andreas Scholl is today regarded as the foremost exponent of this unusual vocal register revived by Alfred Deller in the mid-20th century. The first compilation of his finest tracks (‘Andreas Scholl, The Voice'), released in 2001, is still in the catalogue; with this second volume in two CDs, you can hear Scholl in his repertoires of choice, the English lute song and the Baroque cantata, surrounded by some of the artists closely associated with him.

“Whether Scholl’s voice at all resembles that of the great original [Senesino] we cannot know, but it is wonderfully pure and moves with marvellous flexibility. He has the art of making recitative sound spontaneous and of catching the rhythmic impulse as
Read more though native to his body.”
