“The sound of the Corvus Consort and the Ferio Saxophone Quartet in an intriguing adaptation of the Allegri Miserere from Owain Park, who wrote it for these two ensembles, deliberately capitalising on the Allegri’s colourful and inauthentic history — remembering that the version most of us know and love with its famous high Cs is a 20th-century arrangement itself. I love the way it’s the sax that steals the limelight on the high notes here.”
“The whole album offers intriguing and effective arrangements of music by Schütz, Gabrieli and Bach as well, contemporary reflections from Park, James MacMillan, Roderick Williams and Sarah Rimkus, framed by this beautifully-resonant recording.”
“The intimate way the saxophones and voices interweave and blend is strikingly effective.”
