. . . [this classic interpretation] is as intense and immediate today as it ever was. Opting for an intimate and uncomplicated approach, Bowman draws the listener in . . . The climax, "Eia, Mater", is perfectly poised as the strings play with spine-chilling simplicity . . .

Un disque qui aura définitivement corrigé l'image que le mélomane se faisait alors de Vivaldi . . . aérée et inspirée, des emblématiques "Stabat Mater" et "Nisi Dominus", elle doit autant à la voix chaleureuse de James Bowman qu'à l'approche rigoureuse de Christopher Hogwood.
