Notes & Reviews:

Orlande de Lassus created nothing finer than the Lagrime di San Pietro, a collection of 20 spiritual madrigals and one motet for seven voices; A cycle of intense reflections on the sorrows of St Peter following his denial of Christ, it was assembled shortly before the composer's death in 1594 and dedicated to Pope Clement VIII. Into this collection Lassus pours every dramatic nuance and piece of harmonic invention he could possibly muster, hurling the listener through the stages of Peter's rage, remorse and resignation, and concluding with a motet which presents Christ's response to the world. Gallicantus add to their already impressive catalogue of works on Signum with this new recording.

MusicWeb International, 13th November 2013
Crouch makes his singers follow the nuances most carefully, underlining words and phrases through dynamic shading and looking for the optimum transparency...This is a thoroughly compelling performance which has all the qualities necessary to make a lasting good impression.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
The sound image is compelling on its own terms, with the homogeneity typical of ensembles with countertenors on the top lines. But it's a flexible interpretation nonetheless...an involving experience.

Early Music Today, December 2013
Everything Gallicantus touches seems to turn to gold... A large part of the appeal comes from the wonderfully blended all-male sound countertenors Mark Chambers and David Allsopp cover the whole stave with ease, supported by a rich scaffolding of tenors, baritones and low, low bass.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
They sing with great sensitivity and a very tight ensemble. This is an honorable venture - and it is ably backed by unusually penetrating booklet notes, as well as full texts and translations. In the end I think that the most compelling realizations of this very specially spiritual music remain Rooley's C'mon, Decca- Oiseau-Lyre, give it back! - and Herreweghe's.
