Discography Press Reviews
Lester’s touch on the organ is as sensitive to the devotional impetus behind Cavazzoni’s, Gabrieli’s and Merulo’s instrumental writing as is the vocal articulation by the Bergamo choir in the choral passages… a convincing amalgam that truly captures the essence of this complex and comprehensive form… …faithful to the way the music must have sounded in the sixteenth century. Lester’s highly accomplished playing has the characteristics on the one hand of stateliness, dignity and a measured reserve… …enthusiasm, immediacy and realism on the other. A wonderful selection to be sought out and enjoyed over and over again.
