Notes & Reviews:

Paul McCreesh and his Gabrieli Consort & Players presents a new recording of one of the early masterpieces of the Baroque era, Monteverdi's 'Vespro della beata vergine,' a collection of psalm settings for Vespers published in 1610. With its structural clarity and focus on the beauty of the human voice, it outshines much of the sacred music of the following decades. "The energy and imagination of McCreesh's performance with the Gabrieli Consort and Players re-created the atmosphere of early 17th century Italy in the 21st century East End of London...The depth and insight of the vocal performances was matched by the brilliance of the instrumental playing." -The Guardian (Critical acclaim for concert performances of the Vespers)
