EDITORS’ NOTES

A blend of the ancient and modern performed with arresting power by the lean-toned Marian Consort. The ancient comes courtesy of Allegri—a beautifully sung Miserere—and Palestrina, including the Stabat Mater, done with such striking clarity that every line of its double-choir texture is crystal clear. But it’s the modern that grabs the attention: Gabriel Jackson unsettles and rewards in equal measure, and he engages with the intensity of the words; the richness of his invention is jaw-dropping. James MacMillan’s Miserere, indebted to the music of the Renaissance, is also a profoundly moving experience.
