Notes & Reviews:

A complete edition of all Gaspare Spontini's vocal chamber-music pieces currently known is presented here for the first time. These pieces were composed for all sorts of purposes and performed in the circles of private drawing rooms. This recording, which is the outcome of an extensive, meticulous work on the sources, includes the collections, the independent tunes and, in the appendixes, the modified or translated pieces, the drafts and sketches, and the original contemporary arrangements.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The performances are very good. The singers are not superstars, but they sing with assurance, fine style, and elegant expression. This is a lot of music and it may be of interest primarily to music historians. It's worth hearing. When I returned to it one CD at a time I found it more rewarding. The recorded sound is well balanced and captures the delicacy of the old instruments very well. Care was given in matching instruments and voices.
