Scarlatti – Dixit Dominus (DXL 1096)
Armonico Consort has established itself as one of the foremost interpreters of baroque and renaissance music since its formation in 2001. This recording features the world premiere recordings of Francesco’s Messa and Dixit Dominus, for which they are joined by soprano Emma Kirkby, Concerto Galleses and The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble.
"Presented here are world premiere recordings of Francesco's Messa and Dixit Dominus, both works in the polychoral style for 16 parts, and the smaller-scale Miserere. "The Armonico Consort, accompanied by the concerto Gallese and English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble, give lively, stylish performances under Christopher Monks, relishing the grandeur of the antiphonal polyphony and the frequent moments of awestruck wonder. There is plenty of fine music here and some that is truly ravishing." Evening Standard, July 2004View Booklet View on iTunes View on The Classical Shop
