"Gramophone Award-winner Rinaldo Alessandrini sweeps into contention with a glorious recording of this amazing work." Editor's Choice - Gramophone Magazine (February 2005)"
Editor's Choice Gramophone Magazine February 2005.
"Long-awaited and demanding to be heard - however you like your Vespers. Gramophone Award-winner Rinaldo Alessandrini sweeps into contention with a glorious recording of this amazing work. The consort singing is bold and focused, yet sensitive...a thrillingly full-blooded "Audi coelum" from baritone Pietro Spagnoli sends shivers down the spine. Recorded in the Palazzo Farnese in Rome with an impressive line-up of Italian singers, here's a set already positioning itself for the 2005 Awards." (Gramophone)
"This is as passionate and Italianate an account of this wonderful score as I have ever heard. Monteverdian nirvana" Sunday Times
