MusicWeb International Reviews Hymns of Kassianí

Dominy Clements reviews Hymns of Kassianí for MusicWeb International:

“much to appreciate in this substantial recording of Kassianí’s music… Cappella Romana is a leading vocal ensemble that is best known for its performances of Byzantine chant, and you have the feeling that you are in safe hands in the way they bring Kassianí’s ancient manuscripts to life… Cappella Romana sings with a weighty devotional passion which, while avoiding histrionics, prevents this listening experience from becoming passive meditation. This spaciously recorded SACD disc is refreshingly free of pretensions and special effects and, as far as I can tell, is the current reference for this rather special repertoire.”
