Notes & Reviews:

I Fagiolini has established itself as one of the world’s leading interpreters of the literature of the Italian madrigal. Volume two continues to juxtapose the full range of the secular chamber works, from a capella madrigals through duets to grander pieces with strings, so that in any single disc the listener can appreciate the full extent of his genius in this genre. Robert Hollingworth hopes the recording will "bring certain extraordinary madrigals into the light." One such piece is 'Rimanti in pace', which, as James Weeks also says of the much better known 'Si ch' io vorrei morire', is unlike any other Monteverdi madrigal.

BBC Music Magazine
... I Fagiolini are at their best in the quietly pastoral pieces. 'Rimanti in pace' is an early masterpiece from Book 3, sung with the tenderest of touches at the melting harmonies, and 'Lagrime d'amante'... is given the most persuasive performance I have heard...

Gramophone Magazine
Under Robert Hollingworth's inspired direction, the five singers squeeze all the emotion possible out of the suspensions, both diatonic and chromatic.
