Just some of the reviews for this sensational album:

'Subtle and moving' - The Observer

'a powerfully affecting landscape' - The Independent

'Enough to test anyone's hi-fi equipment' - The Times

'40 voices hitting you beautifully left and right' - The Times

'Beautifully performed by I Fagiolini with soloists and countless continuo parts, the polychoral effects are striking ... a masterpiece.' - The Guardian

'Its impact in this premiere recording by the voices and period instruments of I Fagiolini under Robert Hollingworth is terrific ... Tallis, in a healthy show of one-upmanship, devised much trickier part-writing for Spem in alium, as anyone who has sung it will know, but the two works complement one another perfectly. ' - The Daily Telegraph


This trailer on Decca's recording with I Fagiolini reveals a work by the Italian Alessandro Striggio -- believed lost until the recent discovery of vocal parts, in Paris. Striggio's 40-part mass Ecco sì beato giorno was based on his own 40-part motet Ecce beatam lucem, which is also included on the album. The mass is a spectacularly colorful and dramatic work, which in the final Agnus Dei calls for no fewer than 60 individual vocal parts.

I Fagiolini is an acclaimed British solo-voice ensemble specialising in Renaissance and Contemporary music. An inspired programmer, Robert Hollingworth founded the group in 1986.
