Sweelinck - Cantiones Sacrae, Vol.1

Recorded 9-11 January & 16-18 March 1998. Released April 1999.


“Richard Marlow and his youthful choir deserve credit not just for salvaging this music but for presenting it in such vital and responsive performances” – BBC Music Magazine

At the time of release, these recordings represented landmark contributions to the discography of ‘the Amsterdam Orpheus’ whose choral works Richard Marlow noted to be “neglected…largely unavailable and, until very recently, mostly forgotten.” This first volume presents the first 21 pieces of Sweelinck’s 1619 ‘Cantiones Sacrae’ collection.
