La Compagnia del Madrigale’s recording of Gesualdo’s Responsories from services for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday was our Choral & Song Choice in the July issue.

These works reflect upon important events in the life of Jesus Christ: his betrayal, trial and the crucifixion.

‘Few composers have equaled Gesualdo’s insight into the anguish of the events, nor with the care with which his minute musical details make vivid their depiction,’ writes Anthony Pryer in his review of the disc.

He continues: ‘This recording by La Compagnia del Madrigale surpasses all others. The singers not only reveal the depth of Gesualdo’s emotional understanding, but also his formal, harmonic and textural control, as well as his ability to create music with tremendous performance potential.'
