Musica Secreta - Lucrezia Vizzana Componimenti Musicali - The Sunday Times

01 January 2007
The Sunday Times

'…the music is reminiscent of Monteverdi and others, but admirably wrought and certainly worth discovering...The group’s cast is a recommendation in itself, and there is no doubt that music and interpretation are evenly matched. Seraphic sounds…Musica Secreta’s fine disc shows her (Vizzana) to have been an excellent composer...all the performances are atmospheric. If they find more music of this quality, scholars will at last be able to revise musical histories without having to indulge in token feminism.'
