"The best Samson ever" by Dunedin Consort & John Butt receives award nomination
Dunedin Consort's 'Best Recording'
We always thought maybe we were just biased when we said that Dunedin Consort's recording of the Monteverdi Vespers was the best around, but now we have received official confirmation that this is true!
BBC Music Magazine paid an aural visit to late-Renaissance Italy to find the best recordings of this spectacular masterpiece and named Dunedin Consort's the 'Best Recording' in the Building A Library series.
"This is one of those rare recordings, impressive at first blush, that reveals more with every hearing...this Vespers transcends historically informed performance practice to touch the spiritual core of Monteverdi's masterwork." BBC Music Magazine
