A fine disc with music that delights throughout and never disappoints. There is not a moment of boredom, but a constant supply of fresh invigorating music, well performed and sung by two excellent sopranos, ( Catherine Greuillet and Noémi Rime), and a thunderous but well within limits the Bass François Bazola, all aided by an instrumental group of enthusiasts.
The Alma redemptoris Mater for two Sopranos is a musical marvel, movingly sung, as are all the other pieces. Very much liked the Organ contributions of Olivier Vernet. The instrument is a fine one. The sound is pretty good.
