Sudie Marcuse
American Record Guide, September 2012

PERGOLESI, G.B.: Stabat mater / Salve Regina / Orfeo (Klepper, Borst) C5130
PERGOLESI, G.B.: Stabat Mater (excerpts) / Laudate pueri (Hofstetter) OC831

These two recordings of works by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi…offer very different performances: the Bamberg Quartet uses modern instruments and female vocalists, while the Neumeyer Consort uses 18th Century instruments and male countertenors…both are wonderfully played and sung, both are true to the spirit of this intensely devotional work, and both have moments of breathtaking beauty. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
