An imaginative selection of Christmas motets and fashion-conscious ‘genre’ pieces from the early seventeenth century. La Fenice are particularly sympathetic accompanists, providing a malleable and colourful palette which enables the fine solo singers to exploit fully the enterprising imagery of Monteverdi’s contemporaries. Merula’s Canzon sopra alla nanna is a deeply poignant, almost hypnotic meditation – amongst several exquisite things to be found here.'
