For incisive choral singing and sheer theatrical excitement, this has few rivals. The choir pounces on every dramatic and textual detail, and the soloists project with bags of weight and vibrato. Big and thrilling.

. . . the glorious acoustics and intricate architecture provided a sumptuous stage for the performers. Their approach is high-octane -- dramatic, sensual and highly inflected -- and in their balance between theatrical excitement and glittering grandeur they capture the very essence of Venetian flamboyance. One of the most thrillingly atmospheric recordings of Baroque choral music ever made.
