'...a crowning personal achievement in (Gardiner's) long and distinguished career.'

'...a pristine Monteverdi in which words and music align with the most gripping, communicative immediacy.'

Culturebox by Lorenzo Ciavarini Azzi

'The magic is uncontainable.'

'You are suddenly and immediately immersed – to your huge surprise– in a surge of emotions, brought on by the theatricality of the singers and actors, by the singing itself, by Gardiner’s exceptional Monteverdi Choir and the accomplished playing of the English Baroque Soloists, and above all by the intrinsic beauty of the music.'
