Notes & Reviews:

The music contained in this CD represents a selection of Vespers movements written by the organist Johann Pachelbel. They have in common the distinctively sonorous scoring of four or five-part choir, accompanied by a six-part string orchestra to which is added, at the composer's express request, a bassoon. Charivari Agreable represent "a new and very exciting phase of the early music revival, one that enriches the existing repertory and can bring us ever closer to the spirit of the original music" (Gramophone). The King's Singers are truly remarkable. They continue to be one of the most sought-after and critically acclaimed vocal ensembles in the world, performing a rich and varied repertoire.

"This is no doubt an important new recording; so far as I can tell, it's the first available recording of the assorted Vespers compositions of Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706): works that have lain dormant for three centuries now...Performance quality is miraculous; any new recording from the six fabulous voices of the King's Singers is cause for celebration...Director Ng seems to have the perfect interpretive touch for this music. Ng is also the author of excellent notes: a long and rambling musicological treatise that is still good reading. Glowing sound quality rounds out an indispensable package." - American Record Guide
