"Bernard Labadie conducts Les Violins du Roy, joined by Dorothea Roschmann, soprano, and Catherine Robbin, mezzo soprano. These particular performances were recorded in L'eglise de Saint-Isadore in Quebec in 1993. Roschmann and Robbin offer nuanced and delicate interpretations which the slower, meditative duets in Pergolesi demand. While the slower movements in Pergolesi may be slightly uptempo, the vocal performances are, nonetheless, stunning. I have not listened closely to the Vivaldi offerings; I purchased this disc for the Pergolesi and am very pleased I did so.This recording also comes with extensive liner notes in English and French. The notes provide extensive background on the pieces and the evolution of their treatment, as well as biographical notes on the conductor and performers and translations from the latin."
