Notes & Reviews:

"It's a voice that has no artificial edge or unsteadiness (an unfortunate feature typical of many "made" countertenors) because, according to Scholl himself, this is the voice he was born with. And it happens to be one of the finest of its kind you're ever likely to hear. Besides his beautiful sound, Scholl demonstrates in every utterance his consummate musicianship and extraordinary technique... it's nice to have one disc that by itself shows off the many facets of a performer's art. And with Scholl, you'll certainly agree, these facets not only are many, but at this point at least, they are incomparable." -Classics Today (10/10)
