Voices building delicate webs and melodic lines that make refined ornaments blossom: the mystery of god’s incarnation through the body of the Virgin Mary as a sensually beguiling portrayal in the Holy Virgin Songs of two English master composers. At least when outstanding ensemble Graindelavoix dedicate themselves to these milestones of vocal polyphony. Their recording was listed on the 2019 record critics’ list of the best and quite rightly so.
