The Cappella Mariana's album titled Praga Rosa Bohemiae, featuring
works of Rennaisance Prague, is the RECOMMENDED album on MusicWeb
„It is to be hoped that more music from Renaissance Bohemia will be
performed and recorded. I can hardly imagine a better ensemble for that task
than the Cappella Mariana. Seldom I have so much enjoyed the singing of an
ensemble of this kind. The two brilliant sopranos, Hana Blazikova and Barbora
Kabatková, have a substantial influence on the sound this ensemble produces.
Not only blend the voices perfectly, the singers also shape the lines
beautifully and create a nice but never exaggerated dynamic shading. Lastly, the
acoustic is just right: there is a nice amount of space around the ensemble
without too much reverberation.
This disc offers the perfect combination of an interesting programme and superb
singing. It goes straight to my list of recordings of the year.“
