Notes & Reviews:

This wonderful new recording from Ex Cathedra and Jeffrey Skidmore casts a dazzling light on composers whose names are as obscure as their music is revelatory. Discover Jose Mauricio Nunes Garcia's Missa pastoril para a noite de natal, Andre da Silva Gomes's Missa a 8 vozes e instrumentos and more as you travel back in time to an unfettered South America.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
[Skidmore's] visit [to Brazil] has culminated in an unexpectedly touching and beautiful portrait of Brazilian early music that is sure to surprise even the most intrepid musical explorers. 'Brazilian Adventures' is striking not only for its tender approach but also for the focus on later historical styles than one normally associates with these performers.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2016
The writing for upper voices in Lobo de Mesquita's Padre nosso gleams alluringly, and has the same quality of artless fluidity which seems to characterise Brazilian music of this period. The performances catch effectively this sense of freshness and spontaneity, and one can only hope there might be a second volume in the offing.
