  2. David Bates leads La Nuova Musica in a pair of contrasting settings of Psalm 109. Handel's masterful and ambitious HWV 282 was penned in 1707 during a youthful visit to Italy. Vivaldi's vivid and economical RV 807 (his third "Dixit Dominus") was long mistakenly attributed to Baldassare Galuppi; it probably dates from the early 1730s. Rounding out the programme is Vivaldi's dazzling motet for solo voice, "In furore iustissimae irae," featuring soprano Lucy Crowe.

  3. "Kristian Bezuidenhout plays Mozart on the fortepiano like no-one else. ... He performs...with all the sensitivity, expressivity, flair and stylistic integrity that has marked him out as a supreme master of the early keyboard. ...the tone is vibrant, the music thoroughly engaging, and the genius of Mozart is brilliantly and eloquently served." (The Scotsman, UK, review of Volume 3)

  4. Texts inspired by the dramatic events of Holy Week and Easter, set to music by some of the greatest Renaissance composers from England and the Continent. Included are two settings of the poem "Woefully arrayed": the first by William Cornysh (1465-1523), the second composed for Stile Antico in 2009 by John McCabe (b. 1939); this is its first recording. "What a sound: perfectly blended, carefully balanced, its sonorities reaching back effortlessly to conjure up a vanished age of devotion" (THE OBSERVER, UK)
