"... beautifully sung ..." - Early Music Today "Five Stars ... surpasses all others. The singers not only reveal the depths of Gesualdo's emotional understanding, but also his formal, harmonic and textural control ... La Compagnia del Madrigale are sensitive to every word of the text as well as to every note of the music. All in all, a superb recital." - BBC Music Magazine "Four Stars ... the group's meticulous attention to every verbal nuance and to all the chromatic inflections and dissonant clashes in Gesualdo's often tortured harmonies makes its point. It's wonderfully accomplished singing, very unlike any other performance of these strangely compelling pieces that I've heard ... thought-provoking at the same time." - The Guardian The Responsoria by Carlo Gesualdo, published in 1611, represent a remarkable emotional outpouring in sacred repertory from a composer who was living out his final years amidst melancholy thoughts and an increasingly precarious state of health. Over these three discs, the a cappella vocal ensemble La Compagnia del Madrigale's striking interpretation of the Responsoria is interspersed with spiritual madrigals from some of Gesualdo best-known contemporaries, whose religious texts further underline the madrigalesque nature of the Responsoria. Also included are two comparative rarities from Gesualdo’s sacred output, In te, Domine, speravi and Ne reminiscaris, Domine.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
