REVIEWS FOR ‘Missa ad imitationem Vinum bonum’:

‘It is fascinating to observe the skill with which Lassus reworks his models (for parody masses), chosen most commonly from among Italian madrigals, French chansons and Latin motets… Ex Cathedra offer a clear alternative to king’s. Their account of the motet Vinum Bonum itself is more involving, and for the Mass theirs is the more dynamic reading… Ex Cathedra present a contrasting series of motets for three to eight voices, and the wind ensemble round out the disc with 3 bicinia, two-part pieces excerpted from his vocal music’ (Gramophone)

‘an excitingly distinctive cutting edge … builds into a truly majestic sound’ (BBC Music Magazine)

‘a glorious sound. I shall be returning to this CD often.’ (The Singer)

‘This is music of stunning beauty… The singing is superb: idiomatic, unhurried yet always bending towards conveying the sublime, the venerating, the sensitive and the divine’ (www.musicweb-international.com – Recording of the month)
