Alexandra Coghlan
Gramophone, March 2017

One of many wealthy women to take the veil in 17th-century Milan, Chiara Margarita Cozzolani was also one of many to turn to composition. During her lifetime, she was considered one of Milan’s leading composers, her prolific output dominated by sacred vocal works. Her Christmas Vespers is especially joyful, alternating rich choruses with florid solos and duets. This premiere recording captures it’s exhilarating energy, if not always its full vocal drama. © 2017 Gramophone
