Notes & Reviews:

Countertenor and director Damien Guillon has been proving himself as an admired interpreter of the spiritual side of Baroque music. Now with his Glossa debut, he creates this fascinating pairing of Vivaldi and Bach psalm settings. Guillon performs on this recording with his ensemble, Le Banquet Celeste. Also featured on this album is soprano Celine Scheen, whose vocal purity finds an ideal match alongside Guillon's warm countertenor voice.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
This is a profoundly thoughtful new interpretation by countertenor Damien Guillon, who directs his own ensemble Le Banquet CTleste and is joined by soprano CTline Scheen. The hallmarks of their compassionate performance are relaxed, natural singing and astute, sophisticated playing.
