Notes & Reviews:

"Robert King continues his series of the complete sacred works of Claudio Monteverdi with a program of Vespers psalms, motets, and an exuberant setting of the Gloria for soloists, choir and obbligato instruments including sackbuts and violins. We have come to expect nothing but first-rate performances from Robert King and his colleagues, and this recording does not disappoint. Hyperion's recorded sound is clear but warm, sumptuous, and intense, as befits the music." - Gatens, ARG

'The warmly enveloping acoustic is exactly right for this opulent, exciting music; and Robert King's trusty group disport themselves with the usual trim gusto. With performances like these I'd be happy if this series rolled on forever' (The Times)

'No Monteverdi enthusiast will want to be without this superb selection ... Robert King's light-footed approach to the big pieces, with brisk speeds and crisp, springy rhythms, keeps up both the momentum and the excitement to produce some thrilling climaxes' (The Daily Telegraph)

'It would be difficult to praise these performances to highly ... the clarity and sheer élan here defeat close rival performances by William Christie and Konrad Junghänel' (BBC Music Magazine)

'We have come to expect nothing but first rate perfomances from Robert King and his colleagues, and this recording does not disappoint. Hyperion's recorded sound is clear but warm, sumptuous, and intense, as befits the music' (American Record Guide)

'this is another fine issue to add to a series that has now firmly established its credentials as yet one more (brilliently plumed) feather in the respective caps of King and Hyperion' (Fanfare, USA)
