Notes and Editorial Reviews

“The performances of the 'madrigali erotici' are more overtly impassioned than I have ever heard before... thoroughly ingenious recital” (Gramophone)

“A gem of its type. Performances are powerful, direct, accurate, totally in tune and totally committed. I quote ‘What was outward, erotic and theatrical became inward, devotional and thoroughly christianised.’ So, highly enjoyable recordings and fascinating insight into the painstaking art of not allowing the Devil to have the best tunes!” (MusicWeb)
