From the twelfth century (Saint Hildegard) to the twenty-first, the voices of The Gesualdo Six weave a meditative reflection around the ancient Office of Compline in a moving sequence of music fromfourteen composers.

"Ingeniously programmed and impeccably delivered, with that undefinable excitement that comes from a group of musicians working absolutely as one, The Gesualdo Six's 'Fading' is startlingly, urgently excellent...The Gesualdo Six are the real deal. Far from fading, they're just coming into focus" Gramophone Editor's Choice April 2020

"Throughout the disc the musicians sing with splendid attention to detail; each voice is a shimmering thread that is woven into the dense tapestry of sound they create. There is a delicate musical balance that they maintain throughout all of the works that only increases my admiration for this group and Hyperion's commitment to promote their exemplary work."
