"La Serenissima'

a new CD by The Rose Consort of Viols

due out on the Delphian label in August 2014


  ' is the intensity of their listening, five musicians and a sound engineer, focussed on finding a perfect blend which yet lets the intricate parts speak, that is so striking. It is demanding and exhausting but by the end of the day deeply satisfying, food for the soul. Even we listeners are uplifted...'
