Review By Dan Morgan,MusicWeb International,May 2013

With such stellar expectations surely I was bound to be disappointed? Emphatically not; from that rousing Schütz opener = deep, burnished and with a tremendous sense of occasion—it’s clear we are in for something rather special. Even in SACD stereo the antiphonal effects are evident, although I imagine the multichannel mix would be even more immersive. Gabrieli’s Sacrae Symphoniae are equally splendid—the Canzon primi toni a 8 is lithe and lovely—and while the synchronisation of all these forces is a challenge there are very few instances where it’s a perceptible issue.
