The Blossoming Vine

Italian Maestri in Poland

The Sixteen: The Blossoming Vine

‘Bertolusi’s seven-voice motet Osculetor me osculo is a particularly fine response to the sensuous imagery of the text, its liquid vocal lines pliantly shaped here by conductor Eamonn Dougan. Pacelli pulls out all the stops in Dum esset rex, a sumptuous ‘colossal Baroque’ edifice scored for 20 voices in five choirs, with a daunting vocal range. The Sixteen respond magnificently: in a swirl of all-embracing sound.' Kate Bolton
