This recording features a wide variety of works by the Czech composer Leoš Janácek, ranging from the mayhem of the Ríkadla nursery rhymes and the description of the shameful antics of Mr Kašpar Rucký to the serene beauty of the Lord’s Prayer setting.

Several of the pieces are only rarely performed, even today when the composer’s reputation is growing fast, and are little known outside the Slavic choral tradition which so influenced their style.

Excellent performances … a well made and enjoyable record’ - Gramophone

These performances strike me as nearly ideal … this enchanting Hyperion disc’ - Fanfare, USA
