… and …
…a collection of sacred music by Arvo Pärt, Julia Wolfe, Caroline Shaw, interspersed with songs from the Laudario di Cortona, Italy.

"Thematic connections are to be teased out everywhere...Above all, this is consummate choral singing, Paul Hillier's singers create moments of exquisite tenderness and stillness luminous, multi-coloured and virtuosic, each word lovingly and clearly enunciated, each line beautifully shaped, in a performance of deep, rapt spirituality...This recording offers spiritual revelation and sonic pleasure from start to finish." BBC Music Recording of the Month Feb 2021

"This is a delightful and quirky programme (something to be expected of Paul Hillier, of course), mixing contemporary music with Italian medieval laude...Ars Nova are, as usual, fully in command of both early and recent styles: this is a sparkling, thoughtprovoking recording of great originality." Gramophone
