Notes & Reviews:

"As anyone who has experienced a concert by Robert Hollingsworth and I Fagiolini, the group he founded 20 years ago, would expect, their first Monteverdi disc takes a very different approach from that of either Alessandrini or Haim. Their sequence ranges widely: opening with La Musica's aria from the prologue to the opera Orfeo, it then extracts numbers from the fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth books of madrigals, as well as returning to Orfeo for the purely instrumental Sinfonia, to provide a cooling interlude. It's put together with imagination, wit and profound admiration for the expressive power of Monteverdi's word setting, and every number is performed with the same combination of sterling virtues." -The Guardian

The Times
... some of the most exquisitely intense vocal music ever written...
