Review quote

If you think of Sweelinck as a keyboard composer only, prepare for a welcome surprise! . . .They are composed in a strong polyphonic idiom typical of the late Renaissance. The five voices may be supported by organ continuo (a realization is provided in this edition), but the pieces may be performed successfully a cappella. Beati pauperes is in two main sections (the secunda pars follows a perfect cadence), while O sacrum convivium has a joyful section in triple-time before quadruple metre returns for the ingeniously contrapuntal Alleluias that close the motet. Choirs with the resources and skills to perform these works will surely find them excellent additions to their repertoire. * Christopher Maxi, Church Music Quarterly, December 2010 * The edition is excellent, with brief notes on the composers, source, editorial method, text and translation, and performance suggestions. The music of both pieces is splendid. * Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher July 2010 *show more
