Notes & Reviews:

World Premiere recording! This Mass has come down to us as a single manuscript source, dated 1689 and kept in the Archive of the Holy House Shrine in Loreto. The manuscript is archaic not only in looks but also in content, disposition of the parts, and notation. It is difficult not to think of this Missa as a devout testament offered by Legrenzi to the Virgin of Loreto.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
This program of music by Giovanni Legrenzi (1626-90), who spent most of his career in Venice, brings together a Mass, three vocal pieces that honor the Virgin Mary (published 1655, 1660, and 1670), and two string sonatas from a 1655 collection.

MusicWeb International, July 2012
This is music of great beauty, sophistication and emotional strength. It's performed with aplomb, sensitivity and technical zest...Although the profundity and loveliness of Legrenzi's music will surprise you if you're not fully familiar with it, this CD makes a quiet and sane contribution to his profile. Don't hesitate.
