A poignant, poetic evocation of the conjectural life and death of Saint Katherine: there is a natural sympathy between The Binchois Consort’s programme and the accompanying illustrations of alabaster from the fifteenth and twenty-first centuries.


... the security and stylistic acumen that the Binchois bring to this repertory, their near-exclusive focus in the last few years, which has never been better served. ... Dunstable’s Salve scema sanctitatis closes the disc in show-stopping style, less contemplative than The Hilliard Ensemble’s reading but scarcely less detailed. ... I must here join the ensemble in saluting the memory of their regular collaborator Philip Weller, whose death late last year leaves his many friends bereft and music deprived of a gifted and faithful servant.  Fabrice Fitch
Gramophone July 2019
