Notes & Reviews:
"The vocal ensemble La Venexiana has recorded all nine books, and the authority and radiance of its performances make them a treasure for anyone who loves early vocal music. The group's singing is notable for its astonishing purity, flawless intonation, and seamless legato. The tone is exceptionally sweet and smooth, and even in the most wrenchingly emotional passages the group never sacrifices the integrity of its sound. In spite of the individuality of the members' voices, the blend is consistently warm and silken. Claudio Cavina leads the group in performances whose rhythmic flexibility mirrors the texts' changing moods; the singers respond to him like a single organism." -All Music Guide
I find La Venexiana's darker hues and dramatic but not histrionic approach to be unbeatable.
