Notes & Reviews:

This is the final installment of Les Voix Humaine's ambitious cycle of recordings of the complete works for two viols by Sainte-Colombe, the first-ever in the history of recording. Considered by many to be the greatest 17th century gambist, Sainte-Colombe was the subject of the celebrated 1991 film Tous les matins du monde. Though much of his life remains a mystery, the emotional depth of Sainte-Colombe's music still haunts us with its range of expression and contrasts in tone and color. Susie Napper and Margaret Little have been thrilling audiences with performances of exotic masterpieces of the 17th and 18th centuries for the past 20 years. Les Voix Humaines are renowned for their spectacular arrangements of a wide variety of music for two viols and their brilliant performances of contemporary music commissioned by the duo. They have performed at many of the most important festivals in North America, Mexico and Europe including the Boston Early Music Festival, Early Music Vancouver, the Brighton International Music Festival, England, and the Festival Oude Musiek, Holland. Their previous volumes in this series (ATM22275, 22276 and 22277) continue to generate critical acclaim and are considered "absolutely superb, encompassing all the poetic intensity of Sainte-Colombe's music" (Brian Robins, Fanfare).
