Review quote

Finnissy asks of his performers , in this case the occasional. . . extreme efforts, and this results in maximum intensity.

Together with a mixture of influences from various musical sources, this made for an exceptional experience. * Maurice Wiche, De Limburger, September 2008 * a contemporary ode to ancient chant: intricate, searching and penetrating. * Kasper Jansen, NRC Handelsblad, September 2008 *show more
