Aussi bien les voix . . . que les instrumentistes . . . allient clarté, style et expression. Ces festivités religieuses avec lesquelles le controversé Duc de Lerma a chaleureusement accueilli dans sa propre ville le Roi Philippe III, rendues à la vie par McCreesh et un ensemble remarquable, sont exemplaires et deviendront l'un des repères interprétatifs de ce répertoire, comme le sont leur "Requiem" de Victoria et de Morales . . . pour leur beauté.

Both the voices . . . and the instrumentalists . . . combine clarity, style and expression. The controversial duke of Lerma used these religious festivities to welcome King Philip III to his own city. Here they have been brought back to life by McCreesh and an outstanding group in an exemplary fashion and will become one of the landmark performances of this repertory, as his recordings of the "Requiems" by Victoria and Morales already are . . . for their beauty.

Top of my own Christmas list is the 'Music for the Duke of Lerma', with Paul McCreesh once again showing his ability to find the most fascinating music, make it sound absolutely gorgeous, and present it in an irresistible package.
