Editorial Reviews

There's no grand, large-scale music on this exceptional disc--only psalms and hymns for soprano, tenor, bass and strings in various combinations. Typical of the music are three settings of "Confitebor tibi, Domine" (Psalm 110): a jaunty but graceful setting for soprano and tenor, with athletic runs and a gorgeous slow ending; a moderate but charged setting for three voices, each singer delivering a verse in turn before joining dramatically at "sanctum et terribile" ("holy and terrible"); and a setting for soprano and strings combining enchanting delicacy with astonishing virtuosity. That description fits the singing of Emma Kirkby perfectly here; Ian Partridge and David Thomas make ideal partners. After fifteen years in release, this remains one of the best Monteverdi records in the catalog. --Matthew Westphal

5.0 out of 5 stars So good... June 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I checked this out from my library after I learned about Monteverdi in my Music 100 class. I loved it, and after many of the songs were still floating around in my head several years later, I had to have a copy of my own.

The liner notes are helpful and interesting and include the words both in Latin and English.
