Included in this recording are an intriguing booklet essay (about the “Baroque in disguise”) and a stylised selection of pictorial images. Schmelzer encourages the listener/reader to enter into this strange world of artistic clashes and ruptures; not least the fact that Vecchi, a composer better known for his secular music popular in Venice, would have had his sacred music performed in Antwerp. This is achieved with Graindelavoix’s customary uncompromising – often provocative – vocal sound, complete with artfully-executed ornamentation.
“shocking with visceral, stone-ground sonorities in exciting, idiosyncratic, dangerous, Marmite interpretations.” - Choir & Organ, January 2017 (GCDP32110: Machaut - Messe de Notre Dame)
“compelling, because of the beauty of the voices and the evident care that has been lavished on so many details; provocative, because so many of those details will surprise, startle and perhaps infuriate.” - Gramophone Editor's Choice, June 2016 (GCDP32110)
