Notes & Reviews:

Although the madrigals of Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa constitute the best-known part of his oeuvre, his religious music is no less important, revealing a completely different facet of the composer. Aside from the Responsoria (1611), of which Philippe Herreweghe recently made a magnificent recording (LPH 010), most of Gesulado's religious music was published in 1603 under the title Sacrarum cantionum. Unlike the Responsoria, intended for Holy Week services, the motets of 1603 are settings of texts for all circumstances of the liturgical year. For this recording, made in the Santa Trinità abbey church in Venosa, ODHECATON has enriched the sound palette of its men's voices with a few instruments, including an ensemble of violas da gamba. Liuwe Tamminga counterpoints this programme with selected pieces by Giovanni Maria Trabaci and Giovanni de Macque on an historical organ of the Venosa region.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
There is a beautiful blend in the vocal ensemble (as in 'Domine, Ne Despicias'), effective use of the array of instrumental timbres (viols and cornett in 'Tribularer Si Nescirem'), and much that is fervent and heartfelt ('Reminiscere Miserationem Tuarum'). In addition to all 19 motets of the Sacrae Cantiones, the program includes complementary pieces by composers in Gesualdo's circle: organ pieces by Trabaci and De Macque, very well played by Liuwe Tamminga, and Luzzaschi's Marian motet 'Ave Maris Stella'.
