Pergolesi is so perfect!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have always loved the Pergolesi Suite but here it is perfected! Dont get me wrong.....the rest of the cd is excellent but Stabat Mater is the highlight. This cd is a must have and wont end up being a substitute for a coaster!"
Inessa just gets better and better

"Let's hope this CD is back in stock soon, as no lover of great voices would want to be without it.I loved Galante on both the Debut and Encore CDs, but here she is nothing short of sensational. Her marvellously seductive soprano has never sounded better than on this 1999 recording, and her vocal technique is faultless. For a prime example of the latter, try the Caccini Ave Maria for which she is justly famous. Galante tops her own celebrated recording! Her vocal agility (along with new-found colours in the voice) will astound listeners.Unlike her earlier version, the Ave Maria, along with the remainder of the CD, is beautifully arranged in the appropriate period setting. The London Musici provide marvellous support throughout, and the sound is excellent.There are so many highlights that it seems unnecessary to single any one track out. But I will say that the Ave Maria and Handel's Lascia ch'io pianga are worth the price of the CD alone.If you only want to own one Inessa Galante CD, then this is the one to go for."
