To write over and over again how excellent this ensemble performs gets irritatingly repetitive. Which in this case is a positive thing. Really, until now not a word could be wasted on criticism concerning performance, and sound recording. It is all perfect.
This ensembles articulation, and vocal balance is extraordinary good. Such singers are rare, and do not often meet with others to make such perfection as this, happen. Without reservation I recommend this box. Better it doesn't get, only different.
Luzzasco writes beautiful madrigali. Sensual texts, couched in gorgeous melodies. There is a synergy in his works that is breathtaking. The sopranos are singing without unnatural vibrato, there is a pureness about them, amazing actually. I am hooked on it, stock and barrel!

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
