5 stars 'This welcome revitalisation of an iconic group is characterised by warmth of tone and beautiful blend. A thoroughly engaging recording of impeccable clarity.' Choir & Organ

4 stars 'The mood throughout is one of serenity and grace.' Financial Times

'The music of the two contemporary composers was particularly well chosen, both adopting and varying a recognisably mediaeval musical style without in any way approaching pastiche. The four singers of Gothic Voices produce an exceptionally good consort sound as well as impressing in their various solo roles.' Andrew Benson-Wilson

 

Pieces from contemporary composers Joanne Metcalf and Andrew Smith sit alongside settings of Marian texts from the 13th and 14th centuries. Notably, there is a rare setting of English biblical text which precedes the first publication of an English language bible by 150 years.

Mary in her various guises - caring mother, virgin lover, guiding light - are explored through settings of ancient ritualistic texts showing her mythical and human aspects, whilst contemporary settings relate the themes to the modern day. The contemporary works are cleverly constructed around a modal core so that they fit perfectly with the structure and sound of the early music compositions.

With over thirty years experience Gothic Voices' complete understanding of every aspect of early music performance is exceptional.

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
„Es darf als Reverenz an die mittelalterliche Tradition verstanden werden und zugleich an dieses herausragende Ensemble. Wie das Drama der Kreuzigung hier von innen her durchleuchtet wird, im Zusammenklang der klar und transparent geführten Stimmen, ist ergreifend; darin liegt auch ein mystischer Kern."
