Notes & Reviews:

Gaude, Plaude! - the Maedchenchor Hannover (Hanover Girls Choir) sings at the beginning of this CD recording, asking us to rejoice and pay homage in song. Rondeau Production presents the rarely recorded psalms and motets by Chiara Margarita Cozzolani and Maria Xaveria Perucona, two nuns from Italian convents who, as early as the seventeenth century, composed and performed polyphonic choral music especially for female voices. Joined by the Hannoversche Hofkapelle in their interpretation of these exceptional compositions, the Maedchenchor Hannover (Hanover Girls Choir) under the direction of Gudrun Schroefel demonstrates its own extraordinary musical qualities.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Notes, bios, texts, translations. You may need to experiment with your playback volume so that both the large choir and the soloist ensemble come through well. The Magnificat ensemble, singing one voice to a part, has released fine programs of music by Cozzolani (Musica Omnia 103, M/J 2002; 209, N/D 2002; 401, N/D 2010), and I praised a vespers performed by the Orlando Di Lasso ensemble (Thor 2461, M/A 2003).
