Lassus: Lagrime di San Pietro / Ens. Vocal Européen, Herreweghe

Notes & Reviews:

This cycle of 21 spiritual madrigals for seven voices is at once the swan song of the most famous composer of his time, who died in 1594 at the age of 62 just three weeks after dedicating the work to the Pope, and the high point of Counter-Reformation polyphony. More than four centuries later, Philippe Herreweghe's superb performance of the Lagrime di San Pietro proves that the work still has the power to touch the hearts of sensitive listeners.

MusicWeb International, 5th November 2014
The results are enchanting, even spellbinding...it will repay very careful listening.

Early Music Today, December 2014
These become emotional outpourings rather than internal reflection, and Herrewghe varies his forces intelligently across the seven psalms to savour Lassus's many deft compositional touches.
