Voces Suaves - Giaches de Wert: Versi d'Amore - Gramophone

Voces Suaves are new to me; they bring legible and effective performances, and their choices from piece to piece generally make sense, though I would have welcomed a more generous helping of the meatier late madrigals (with a total of just under an hour, there would surely be room for more). Among the later madrigals, ‘Vago augelletto’ shows them off at their best; another highlight is Mirjam Wernl’s solo in ‘Misera, quanto tempo’.
