Super-Excellent

An extravaganza of musical delights to conclude the NCEM’s Awaken Festivities reflecting the majesty and power of Renaissance Europe. Joining together multi-choir music for voices and instruments, I Fagiolini’s Super-Excellent reflects the joyous response of an early 17th century English tourist who wrote of a performance he witnessed in Venice that it was “so good, so delectable, so rare, so admirable, so super excellent… that I was for the time even rapt up with Saint Paul unto the third heaven.” 

The genius of Gabrieli and Grandi intertwines with the musical greats of Germany, Spain and England – creating a majestic sound world designed to remind us all that there are ‘better days ahead’. 

“The ECSE play with ease and a superb blend of voices” .. Accendo CD awarded 5 stars
