VOCES8 and Les Inventions shine light on a hidden musical treasure in these world-premiere recordings of Charles Avison’s 1757 adaptation of Benedetto Marcello’s 'Estro-poetico armonico'. A fresh and original collection, Marcello’s Psalm settings were composed in Venice and quickly found fame across Europe after their publication between 1724 and 1726

The Observer

13th September 2015

****

“What a very interesting character Mr Charles Avison of Newcastle must have been. An 18th-century renaissance man, he composed, conducted and wrote about the theory of music...With their vivid word-setting and lively declamation, the English texts give a slightly homespun quality to the enterprise. Well sung, there’s a striking triple canon with Latin text to finish.”

Classical Ear

19th October 2015

“What a surprisingly delightful album...Voces8 and the instrumental ensemble Les Inventions remarkably manage to persuade us that Avison’s version really is a worthy addition to the repertoire.”
