Notes and Editorial Reviews

An exquisite collection of Holy Week lamentations by an extraordinary group of voices. While not as well known today as his contemporary Palestrina, Lassus was one of the most influential and highly-regarded musicians of the 1500s.

"These performances under Bruno Turner are expressive and vital. The recording too is spacious and warm." -- Penguin Guide 3 stars

"Tony Faulkner (the engineer)... has got it just right here. Each singer is distinguished, and how expert they are with such admirable breath control and diction.” -- Gramophone
