Notes & Reviews:

Published together in 1611, Gesualdo's Fifth and Sixth Books of Madrigals can be seen as musical 'twins', concluding a collection of madrigals by a composer whose boundless invention and creativity was unrestrained by an employer's demands or the constraints of courtly convention. Gesualdo returns to themes of love and rejection, death and suffering, joy and sorrow; creating music which has the power to surprise and enthrall anyone who hears it. This is Delitiæ Musicæ's final volume of their highly acclaimed cycle of the complete Madrigals.

The Guardian, 16th May 2013
A hugely impressive collection, which steers a perfectly judged, immaculate course between the extremes of earthy expressionism and sterile detachment. The recording gives the voices in these five-part works a gentle, resonant warmth, which removes any astringent edges, so that Gesualdo's harmonic adventures seem all the more shocking.
