"... music of outstanding quality ... luminous timbre ... the purity of tone and accuracy of tuning throughout this programme are about as fine as I have ever heard ... a sumptuous wash of sound that is at the same time highly intelligible ... beautifully produced." Andrew O'Connor (International Record Review)
"... exquisitely performed ... David Skinner negotiates these expansive, arching textures with poise and insight ... breathtaking" - Anthony Pryer (BBC Music Magazine)
"Alamire's singing approaches perfection" - Stephen Pettit (The Sunday Times)
"Alamire bring a real fervour to their singing ... radiates assurance ... [they] bring tremendous conviction ... everything about this release exudes quality ... I loved every minute of it." - John Quinn (MusicWeb International)
"Alamire are on top form … each syllable is clear, clean and translucent … it has as much life and verve as it does gentle sophistication … strongly recommended" - Mark Sealey (Classical.net)
Germany's top agent for early music ensembles - Erika Esslinger Konzertagentur - has recently signed Alamire for events in Germany from 2012. Look out for us in Nurnberg and Stuttgart very soon!
This 10-year project is conceived in three periods each of 10 volumes: I Medieval Music; II The Tudor Reformations; and III The Golden Age of Elizabeth and the Stuart Kings. The series will be accompanied by an illustrated companion to the series by David Skinner to be issued by a leading publisher.
The project was recently featured in Gramophone on-line. The article may be read here.
