  Canty vocal ensemble


This disc is dedicated to Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, as is the music itself. With texts newly translated from the original sources, this is a programme of 15th century plainchant, genuinely originating in Ireland, recorded here for the first time after extensive scholarly research. A major addition to the early sacred music repertoire.  Performed by Canty, the renowned female-voice ensemble of Cappella Nova, with William Taylor (clarsach).


“...a subtle and sensitive recreation of devotional music, meticulously researched, and convincingly performed. Canty are an ensemble whose voices maintain individual characteristics, while integrating into a seamlessly unified whole. Their discipline and their ravishing vocal quality make this recording a welcome moment of calm and devotion in an agitated time.”

Sophie Brumfitt

The Consort

“A special disc... we are treated to a loaded program – 38 tracks of music that is probably not heard too often in its liturgical context. The sound is clear and concise, nicely warmed by the light resonance surrounding the singers. This is an affectionate tribute well worth the time, especially for chant lovers.”

Steven Ritter

Audiophile Audition

“The unobtrusive accompaniment of the clarsach will probably add to the appeal of the recording, The singing is excellent, quite the equal of Anonymous Four on their very fine Harmonia Mundi recordings and preferable to a similar Telarc album. Lavish and informative booklet... I did like the paintings by Maria Rud, combining elements of the modern and the medieval, which embellish the front and back of the CD. With excellent recording, this CD may be strongly recommended.”

Brian Wilson
 

Music Web

“The singing is clear, crisp and very communicative. Each singer is clearly traveling in the same direction, on the same journey, as the others are – and as is William Taylor, the harpist. There is a clear and well maintained sense of purpose in the articulation of each of the texts. The style is relaxed. The unison singing very beautiful. The recording made with an appropriate amount of intimacy and delicacy without ever breathing at the listener. The singers of Canty convey a humility and reverence which aptly fits the gentle and assured nature of the music. This CD is a valid and well-executed collection of spare yet tuneful, melodically inventive and sophisticated music that is sure to please all lovers of early choral music. The CD comes with an attractively-produced booklet with texts in both Latin and English and a useful introductory essay. Recommended both for the rarity of repertoire and completely successful execution.”

"This is a major addition to the early sacred music repertoire."
