Choir and Organ Five Star Review for Hymns of Kassianí

The October 2021 issue of Choir & Organ magazine features a five-star review of Cappella Romana’s Hymns of Kassianí recording:

“There’s surely no group more qualified to release the music of the earliest known female composer – a ninth-century Byzantine religious phenomenon. … Her work, now risinga bove earlier censorship and misogynist misattribution, is here celebrated with hugely impressive, authoritative scholarship and performance practice, sonorously glorious vocal colour, and pride by the male and female voices of Cappella Romana… This SACD, recorded in solemnly monumental acoustics, captures both spirit and music with divine intensity.”

—Rebecca Tavener, Choir and Organ
