For their debut recording, the six-strong Marian Consort explores music from late 16th- and early 17th-century Spain. This fascinating programme celebrates the rich compositional fruits of the Siglo de Oro’s intensely competitive musical culture. These luminary works, all dedicated to the Virgin Mary, demand performances of great intelligence and vocal commitment. The youthful Marians respond absolutely, bringing hushed intimacy and bristling excitement to some of the most gorgeously searing lines in the history of European polyphony.

***

“Formed by countertenor Rory McCleery, the Oxford-based Marian Consort makes its recording debut with a disc devoted, appropriately enough given its name, to works dedicated to the Virgin Mary...Fluent performances.”

“The Oxford-based mixed choir makes a bold, bright sound with strong individual voices.”
