Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The performances by the 50-voice choir are highly competent." -- American Record Guide [5/1992]

"Compared with his groundbreaking keyboard sonatas, Domenico Scarlatti's church music seems more conservative... Both St. Peter's in Rome and the king of Portugal, for whom Scarlatti wrote church music, stilo antico was preferred... The sublime bass lines allow the Western Washington University Concert Choir to blossom in these most beautiful melodies. A serene religious music that seems almost effortless to sing..." -- Basler Zeitung [2/19/1992]
