Notes & Reviews:

Carlo Gesualdo has become notorious, not only from his royalty but for the eccentricities of his life and music. Gruesomely murdering his first wife and her lover, mistreating his second wife and isolating himself have all fuelled the "myth of Gesualdo as a madman". Gesualdo turned his prodigious compositional talent to the creation of a collection of pieces that betray his obsession with his own personal sin. The five-voice motets on this release speak as strongly as Gesualdo's words ever could.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
These are impeccable performances, easily the finest on record.

The Observer, 11th September 2016
The consort, under the direction of countertenor Rory McCleery, sings with cool beauty and fervent expression.
