Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Les Arts Florissants recorded this more than 20 years ago and... its hardly aged at all. This includes excerpts from Books 3 and 6, interspersed with strikingly detailed performances on the harp from Andrew Lawrence-King. In their rhythmic freedom they seem to prefigure what Italian ensembles would achieve a few years later, but the cast is a very fine one, and the choice of pieces superb.

BBC Music Magazine
Gesualdo's unnerving music produces some tuning problems and Christie's insertion of instruments is odd. But his telling interpretations make this a welcome, compelling reissue.
