Gramophone about the album 'Stabat Mater'

Pergolesi's Stabat mater and Vivaldi's Nisi Dominus must be high on the list of frequently recorded Baroque music, and I often wonder whether we need a continued focus on what are now canonic and well-known pieces. This new release, however, is moving and poignant: it is obvious these artists have something personal to say about the Stabat mater.


The orchestra are superb accompanists, often setting scenes with striking moods and then operating subtly but persuasively when singers (and, crucially, text) enter.


All in all a very moving and engaging performance from one of the newest and slickest ensembles on the scene.
