Our latest release has been enthusiastically received in the press and on radio. Writing in Gramophone, David Fallows describes it as ‘a stunningly satisfying and innovative disc’. The release was also reviewed in glowing terms on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review (8 October 2016), by Kate Bolton-Porciatti and Andrew McGregor. The reviewers praised our ‘warm, enveloping sound’, and the sense that ‘Stephen Rice offers a deeply thoughtful reflection on the words, and [there is] this incredibly close relationship between word and music. It’s as if he’s really gazed deeply into the texts’. Even before this endorsement, the disc had reached no. 9 in the Specialist Classical charts.
We are delighted to announce that the Ensemble will make its debut at the Wigmore Hall, London, on Monday 12 September 2016 at 7:30pm. We shall perform music by Jacquet of Mantua, Rore, and Lassus. See details of the Wigmore Hall 2016/17 concert series.
