Would you agree that they sing the music in the context of later styles of music? Ie. that they look forward to the late Renaissance and Baroque rather than looking backward to the Medieval. (That's a nicer way of framing a criticism I read on another board against this recording, with the implication that their approach was wrongheaded.)

And it is an odd comment to make since we don't know enough about how they sang in the Medieval period a/o/t the Renaissance, I think it all comes down to someone's ideas about period singing cut with a huge amount of personal taste.What I like: its an all male group, sparse texture stressing a loose ensemble sound, a liquid vocal blend. I guess some would object to the vibrato, but I like it since it fits with everything else they are doing. Marco Longhini's group, Delitiae Musicae, is similar sounding and I like them too. It is certainly not a tradition British sound.However, not everything by them is to my liking. They did incorporated instrumental ensembles in some of their recordings, which I detest. Really, their Palestrina is what I've heard and must have made assumptions which might not apply to their Dufay, which if they used instruments, I wouldn't like.

Quote from: Mandryka on September 08, 2020, 06:52:39 AMAh, do Vartolo and Longhini sing Palestrina with vibrato through all the note? (Not a composer I've ever explored.)
