Notes & Reviews:
There are no stylistic limitations to Singer Pur's repertoire. Its program includes anything performable by voices from medieval times to the avant-garde, new compositions and arrangements for them and improvisation. This recording offers a glimpse of Zarlino the composer and enriches our understanding of the musical life of mid-16th century Venice.
American Record Guide, January/February 2014
As soon as you get to the end of this marvelous piece, you will want to start at the beginning again. These are deeply moving performances of splendid music, heartfelt and beautiful. the intonation is without blemish, rich with depth and shadows, accurate and poised. Tempos perfectly allow the music to breathe, the long cantus firmus lines to sing, and the quicker contrapuntal tendrils to caress.
