. . . a rich compilation . . . Gabrieli's marvellous 14-part "Magnificat" is a highlight; all the performances under Robert Hollingworth using professional and younger voices are gently moulded, resonantly beautiful: a noble celebration.

. . . excellent . . . including some Monteverdi favourites (a fabulously fleet-footed "Beatus vir") and unknown gems . . . The performances are exhilarating.

. . . [highlights include the much-loved "Beatus vir" and] a glorious, 14-part "Magnificat" by Gabrieli . . . I Fagiolini are their usual skilful and imaginative selves.

. . . I Fagiolini sing with a commendable balance of control, power and emotion . . . it is particularly noteworthy that I Fagiolini's singers rein in their vibrato, singing with a purity of tone combined with clear articulation . . . The English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble provide a rich tapestry of colour, collectively and individually, the latter notably from cornettists Gawain Glenton and Andrea Inghisciano.

Habité par un souffle collectif, soucieux des étagements comme d'une sonorité cohérente, Robert Hollingworth affirme une vision d'ampleur et très documentée, aux arguments essentiellement britanniques, d'une indiscutable pertinence . . . Le geste scrupuleux et synthétique du fondateur et directeur musical d'I Fagiolini, Robert Hollingworth, qui sait équilibrer les grandes masses sans perdre le détail des lignes vocales comme instrumentales, égale ses précédentes lectures . . . alliant audace du programme et grande culture musicale. Voilà un programme au titre à la fois mystérieux et prometteur . . . il remplit la fonction qui doit être celle de l'édition musicale: ouvrir de nouvelles perspectives, éclairer différemment l'immense talent d'un compositeur aussi miraculeux et jaillissant que Claudio Monteverdi.
