This fine group strikes a balance between scholarly correctness and a real passion for music which is, after all, passionate.
Scotland on Sunday
Musica Secreta’s singing is perfectly matched to this music: the voices blend beautifully – the soaring sopranos paired with the full, warm tone of the altos – while their mastery of improvised embellishments and their technical and emotional range are impressive and highly effective… Their sound is never sentimental or precious, but has a firm and purposeful edge to it.
International Record Review
Sensual, rigorous and thoughtful…The pearly voices… entwine deliciously over the (all male) continuo section. Even if your tastes normally incline to musical bubble bath, this ravishing music of restrained passion should win you over.
