Praise for Decca’s Release of Striggio’s Mass in 40 Parts

“The surprise hit of the year…” – The Sun
“An extravaganza to excite the wider world” – The Times
“Creatively reconstructed and conducted by Robert Hollingworth, it gets a tremendous performance by I Fagiolini. And a tremendous recording.” – Los Angeles Times

Alessandro Striggio’s long-lost Mass in 40 Parts was rediscovered a few years ago and was recently released in its world-premiere recording by Decca. Under the loving care and guidance of conductor Robert Hollingworth, the work has been given a luxurious recording (including a DVD with 5.1 Surround Sound) by the choral group I Fagiolini. Since its release earlier this year, the recording has continued to excite critics and entrance listeners.
