Notes & Reviews:

The Responsoria by Carlo Gesualdo, published in 1611, represent a remarkable emotional outpouring in sacred repertory. Over three CDs Gesualdo's creative musical response to the Passion of Christ is interspersed with spiritual madrigals from some of his best-known contemporaries whose religious texts further underline the madrigalesque nature of the Responsoria. Also included are two comparative rarities from Gesualdo's sacred output, In te Domine speravi and Ne reminiscaris, Domine.

The Guardian, 6th March 2014
The group's meticulous attention to every verbal nuance and to all the chromatic inflections and dissonant clashes in Gesualdo's often tortured harmonies makes its point. It's wonderfully accomplished singing, very unlike any other performance of these strangely compelling pieces that I've heard, and thought-provoking at the same time.

Sunday Times, 27th April 2014
This is devotional music of mesmerising beauty, the state-of-the-art performances interspersed with spiritual madrigals by Luzzaschi, Marenzio and Vinci...This intense, boldly chromatic music of lamentation is rarely heard Eastertide material, especially programmed as comprehensively as here by the six elite singers.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2014
This new recording...surpasses all others. The singers not only reveal the depths of Gesualdo's emotional understanding, but also his formal, harmonic and textural control...La Compagnia del Madrigale are sensitive to every word of the text as well as to every note of the music. All in all, a superb recital.
