Notes and Editorial Reviews

Polyphony find a warmth and colour in Pärt that even his admirers may be surprised by...My heart’s in the Highlands, with its serene, Pachelbel-like organ line and pellucid vocal by countertenor David James, is a triumph. In the hymn-like Littlemore Tractus and Salve Regina, warm melodies and bursts of colourful chords mellow Pärt’s sound without detracting from its sublime, ethereal beauty...Polyphony’s is a gorgeous performance.... - Gramophone Magazine Polyphony find a warmth and colour in Pärt that even his admirers may be surprised by...My heart’s in the Highlands, with its serene, Pachelbel-like organ line and pellucid vocal by countertenor David James, is a triumph.
