Editorial Reviews

The third and final volume in The Sixteen s acclaimed Selva morale e spirituale series! Included on this final volume are the eight-part Magnificat (Primo), one of the most impressive of all Monteverdi s settings; the old style Credidi and Memento featuring the full choir; and the exquisitely beautiful soprano solo, Pianto della Madonna Iam moriar, mi fili, performed by Grace Davidson.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully executed third volume in the series April 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The title translates to something like "a moral and spiritual forest," and it contains a collection of liturgical works the composer wrote late in his career, around 1641. This third program in The Sixteen's series includes twelve selections, including some with full choir, some with a doubling of strings, and one solo number. It's a varied and, as always from this source, enjoyable anthology.

As we would expect, The Sixteen execute each of the numbers superbly, their singing clearly articulated, their phrasing precise, and their musical expression uniquely strong.

The CORO producers made the album at St. Silas the Martyr, Kentish Town, London, in May and November of 2011. The sound they obtained there is quite lovely, the voices a trifle forward but smooth and natural, while remaining clear and detailed. The limited orchestral support is likewise realistic, and the two groups appear well integrated, neither totally dominating the aural setting. A light, agreeable hall resonance reminds one that the music is liturgical in nature, after all.

Grace Davidson has one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful, soprano voice I have ever heard! Her singing as Mary is so remarkable it may bring tears to the listener's eyes.
