ACD22190 - November, 2006

Star of the Magi

 “Daniel Taylor not only is one of the world's top three countertenors (along with Andreas Scholl and David Daniels), but simply is one of the world's top singers, period. And his singing partner here, soprano Suzie Le Blanc, has no superior in the realm of early music. Together, these two are a marvel [..] The instrumental accompaniments and solo offerings are equally fine, especially the work of Sylvain Bergeron, one of today's outstanding masters of lute and theorbo. Also appearing are Susie Napper and Margaret Little, who have made a respectable name for themselves as Les Voix Humaines, a viola da gamba duo--a unique niche if ever there was one! The program is a well-chosen and intelligently organized selection of early carols and dances directly associated with the celebration of Christmas, made even more appealing by skilful, enticing arrangements that include viols, recorder, lute, drum, bells, and percussion. The sound is remarkable for its realism. Be prepared to be convinced that these performers are right in the room with you.”
