“Sometimes it sounded stern or foreboding, sober or somber, at other times brighter and joyful, or hypnotic, peaceful, and uplifting, or solemn and reverential, even exalted in Great Saturday’s canon. It’s a beautiful work to hear. … Cappella Romana often sings without vibrato, but at times during Passion Week, it used a little as affect, creating shimmering chords. Since its inception in 1991, the group has been performing, with expert scholarship, Orthodox music from medieval times to today’s new works. The choristers have a deep understanding of how to sing it, while the ensemble’s rich but pure sound, excellent pitch sense, and expressive capabilities make their performances not to be missed.” —Philippa Kiraly, Classical Voice North America
