This is the third in the series of compilation discs assembled by Robert Aubry Davis, host and producer of the long-standing public radio series Millennium of Music. Where volume two of the series drew on music for the Christmas season, this volume concentrates on music for Holy Week and Easter; more interestingly, it draws from the rich and varied catalog of early music recordings distributed in the U.S. by Qualiton Imports under the "Gioia Antiqua" imprint. Possibly the most valuable thing about this is that it features lesser-known performers right alongside well-established, highly respected groups such as the Orlando Consort and the Bach Collegium Japan (both in fine form here). Of course, with such a variety of lesser-known ensembles and small labels, this juxtaposition flatters some of these artists more than others. Some appear quite impressive (Schola Gregoriana Pragensis and Ensemble Daedalus, for example); others seem not ready for prime time (Westfälische Kantorei and the Spanish choir Musica Ficta). A particular treat is a medieval motet played by the legendary Dutch recorder trio Sour Cream (one of whose members was conductor Frans Brüggen). On a reasonably priced compilation disc like this, variable quality isn't a major drawback--use it to explore, find what appeals to you, and go on from there. It should be quite a stimulating endeavor. --Matthew Westphal

A beautiful selection of mostly choral pieces from the Baroque and pre-Baroque era. The choices are a mix of the familiar and unfamiliar which make listening to this a pleasure. Chosen for the Easter season, the selections are spiritually moving and will put you in touch with all that is sacred and holy. Performance is impeccable and the sound is rich, resonating with the lofty space of a cathedral.
