Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Composer, organist, organ builder and teacher of international renown, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck was known in his own time as the "Orpheus of Amsterdam." Among his significant contributions to Franco-Flemish polyphony are psalms in French that closely follow the dictates of the Reformation and sacred vocal works in Latin, among which the Magnificat is particularly outstanding. Cappella Amsterdam is a professional chamber choir that was founded in 1970. Over the past few years the ensemble, under the direction of Daniel Reuss, has occupied a prominent position in the field of early music as well as modern and contemporary repertoires.

Gramophone Magazine
The 18 fresh-sounding voices of the professional chamber choir Cappella Amsterdam produce a bright and transparent choral balance. Their intonation is flawless, the French pronunciation idiomatic and unaffected, and underpinned unobtrusively by the organ and lute continuo. The sleeve presentation and programme-notes are first rate.

The Independent on Sunday
The clean, easy blend of Capella Amsterdam fits Sweelinck's smooth, understated polyphony.

BBC Music Magazine
Expressive, affectionate singing of music which closed the polyphonic age in northern Europe.
