El León de Oro, Peter Phillips (conductor)

[ Hyperion / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 1 February 2019

What connects a seemingly disparate selection of names from across Renaissance Europe is the spiritual progression from darkness ('in the midst of life we are in death') to light ('blessed be the name of the Lord'). And, of course, the shrewd musical judgement of Peter Phillips in its devising.

"Phillips pounces on all the details that matter: dissonances crunch satisfactorily, imitative points are tightly nested, and light streams through thick homophony…The choir is fresh-sounding, and its ensemble is assured. It delivers the giddiness of Victoria's Regina caeli with panache. But the innocence of its vocal quality, and its submissiveness to Phillips, left this reviewer wishing for an edgier sound." BBC Music

"Here is a delightful disc made to an interesting recipe…The result has the air of a joyful adventure about it; proudly choral (as opposed to consort) but with absolutely captivating clarity…Their sound is soft and warm, and favours long, flowing phrases over bulging points of imitation."Gramophone

"A very rewarding disc" MusicWeb
