Gothic Voices - The Splendour of Florence - Concerto

The dramaturgical composition is clever, alternating between secular and sacred, between one and five voices. Some chansons are condensed into solo songs, where Andrew Lawrence-King assists with his contributions on the crystal-clear sounding Gothic harp, vividly illustrating the leading voice. It's all done undogmatically, with that stylistic expertise that has always distinguished Gothic Voices. For these vocalists, such music is virtually their daily bread, and the interpretation is just as effective, carried by a high degree of naturalness. Every melodic phrase gets exactly the space it needs to blossom calmly. Nothing seems "made" or even pimped. The music breathes and flows, and this also applies to the few chorale pieces.
