Recent CD reviews

My review of The Divine Mystery, a lovely disc of early polyphony from Schola Gothia with saxophone improvisations from Hanna Wiskari Griffiths is here.
A lovely disc. Beautifully and evenly sung, with nice unanimity.

And my review of Pax, Salam and Shalom, a recital of early music centred upon medieval Sephardic songs, performed by Canticum Novum is here.
Thoughtful and engaging. 

And my review of Telemann's 'lost' opera Germanicus, from his early Leipzig period, is here.
Not the last word in performances of this opera but lovers of Telemann’s music will want this set. 

Finally my review of Shared Ground, the latest disc of Alec Roth's music from Ex Cathedra is here. All 3 reviews are on MusicWeb International.
Music that is well put together and finely crafted. Choral textures of great beauty and melodic interest.
