Contrapunctus, led by Owen Rees, couple powerful interpretations with pioneering scholarship, particularly in music of the 16th and 17th centuries. Currently Vocal Consort in Residence at Oxford University, the ensemble’s first two recordings, 'Libera nos' and 'In the Midst of Life', were both shortlisted for the Gramophone Early Music Award.
“Contrapunctus are special...These are understated performances whose moment-to-moment drama is less striking than the long, aching arcs they achieve over five or six minutes - director Owen Rees shows his experience here, making a case for a conductor in a climate in which musical democracy is increasingly king.” - Gramophone Magazine, Editor’s Choice, May 2015
“Contrapunctus really knows what to do with these pieces and from the very first item...the tuning is superb and the ensemble rock solid. Moreover, Owen Rees's interpretations are revelatory and even visionary... The next volume is keenly awaited.” - BBC Music Magazine, Choral & Song Choice, August 2015 *****
