Notes & Reviews:

"Her anguished singing of the great lament 'Lasciate Averno' is immensely moving, without compromising vocal purity...All the musicians display the greatest skill and stylistic sensitivity...This is as fine a disc as I have ever reviewed." -International Record Review, December 2010

Recreated Renaissance Music as it was heard
Suzie LeBlanc joins La Nef under the direction of Alexander Weimann to recreate Renaissance Music as it was heard and presented in Rome at the Barberinií Palace . The Barberinis surrounded themselves with illustrious thinkers, musicians, artists, and poets, and formed an extended papal family which shared artworks, silver and servants. They mounted lavish theatrical productions, outdoor pageants, presented private music, commissioned art works, and utilized architects. They maintained separate houses but employed many of the same composers, performers, instruments, and performing spaces which linked them all to a common intellectual and artistic program.
