Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, September 2014
Sheehan, who sings the role of Orpheus, [delivers] a finely nuanced interpretation...Amanda Forsythe is a charming Euridice and Roselie, Teresa Wakim a beautifully styled Flore, and Dorothee Mields a compelling Amaranthe and Proserpine.

In cooperation with the Boston Early Music Festival, cpo is releasing two baroque operas by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, works proving to be both complex and highly entertaining. Charpentier wrote an impressive number of sacred works; the number of secular works is considerably smaller, but similarly varied. These two works are genuine standouts. The BEMF once again presents a marvelous cast of young soloists for the interpretation of these two vibrant operas.

The Guardian, 26th June 2014
The scenes in which [Orpheus's] singing eases the torments of the damned in Hades are among the most haunting in his output...It is gloriously sung here by Aaron Sheehan, in a stylish, intense performance.
