I already sung praises hearing the first two discs, and the third one is as good. A gorgeous assembly of composers and their musical efforts portrayed in a telling setting. The voices are for me perfect, and I keep being amazed at the perfect dynamics, and the beautiful shading of the text. The balance between voices is something to be admired too, and I could go on and on. The Hilliards are still a reference choir, if it comes to this repertoire, even if they do not exist anymore in this configuration. They have gone on a different path with other singers, not my cup of tea anymore.
Snatch this box for a ridiculous price. Very much recommended.
