Notes & Reviews:

"The vocal selections on this remarkable disc are all examples of the 17th Century fascination with lamentation--for lost life or love--asan art form. They are all very beautiful and very beautifully sung and played by Von Otter and her colleagues...she displays an idiomatic grasp of this music, navigating easily and tastefully its wide leaps, repeated notes, and ornamentation...Goebel and his experienced period-instrument ensemble supply superb...accompaniment..." -Morin, ARG
