Excellent recording of the chants of Easter
Review By RB114560,May 2011

This is a rather good recording of the chants of Easter. It is an "authentic" recording, in that it benefits from the latest in musicological research. Alessio Randon's teacher, Alberto Turco, was a student of Dom Eugene Cardine, OSB, the brilliant monk of Solesmes who through his teaching at the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome, revolutionized the world of Gregorian chant studies.

The intonation and diction of the choir Aurora Surgit cannot be faulted. Also, Alessio Randon has quite a nice voice. Those who have become interested in chant through the recordings of the monks of Santo Domingo de Silos may find the constant shifts in rhythm annoying. However, how they perform these works is completely in line with the best musicological research of recent years.
