Late Night Lute (DXL 1175)
Inspired by his late night concerts, Matthew Wadsworth’s ‘Late Night Lute’ is a relaxing programme of music for lute and theorbo featuring the newly commissioned work ‘The Miller’s Tale’, composed by Stephen Goss, which received its world premiere at London’s Wigmore Hall in March 2017. This is the much awaited disc by Matthew, whose first solo disc for Deux-Elles released in 2003 ’14 Silver Strings’ (DXL 1044) was named Gramophone Editor’s Choice. "Wadsworth's playing is sensitive and polished throughout throughout, and he draws sumptuous velvet sounds from both the 10-course lute and the 14-course theorbo....The recording is beautifully judged - detailed yet wrapped with a resonant halo."

Carlo Ignazio Monza – Harpsichord Music (DXL 1117)
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
