Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
Comprised of a smoothly continuous succession of gorgeous motets, songs and fantasies for viols, the music on this Delphian disc forms a profoundly satisfying program... The seven-voiced Marian Consort achieves a remarkable blend and purity of sound and the five-part Rose Consort, one of the preeminent viol consorts working today, is a pleasure to hear. This is a great album for early music devotees, but is easily accessible for anyone wishing to delve into the vast musical riches of the period. ... read more ...

For its second Delphian recording, the Marian Consort has leafed through the beautifully calligraphed pages of the partbooks compiled in Oxford between 1581 and 1588 by Elizabethan scholar Robert Dow in order to present a deeply satisfying sequence of some of their brightest jewels. Sumptuous motets, melancholy consort songs, and intricate, harmonically daring viol fantasies are seamlessly interwoven, all brought to life by seven voices and the robust plangency of the Rose Consort of Viols in the chapel of All Souls College, Oxford, where Dow himself was once a Fellow.

The Scotsman
In a program of music sourced from the Dow Partbooks of the 1580s ... McCleery elicits performances that glow with golden purity and soul.
