Johan van Veen
MusicWeb International, August 2015

Angelo Alesci has a very pleasant and agile voice which is excellently suited to this repertoire. The delivery is very good… This is a most entertaining disc, thanks to the quality of the music of Marenzio as well as the instrumental pieces and the fine singing and playing of the three artists. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Fanfare, September 2014

Alesci projects the music with confidence and elegant tone…the pair of lutenists supports her effectively. Watch this group for more good work, for they have a promising future. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

Catherine Moore
American Record Guide, September 2014

These are graceful, gentle, and intimate performances by three excellent musicians. Close and repeated listening reveals so many pleasures: a beautiful bloom results from the lute players’ varied touch, bringing forth a ringing soft resonance from their instruments; and intricate contrapuntal lines in lute fantasias and madrigals are a fine complement to the simpler of the vocal pieces (villanellas). This may be the first Marenzio program to combine these styles, and it is all the more welcome for that. © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
