The Cappella Mariana's album featuring works of vocal polyphony of Renaissance Prague, which was released in August 2019, has been chosen as one of the MusicWeb International Recordings of the Year 2020.
The 146 selections have come from 28 members of the team and 69 different labels, the choices reflecting as usual, the great diversity of music and sources. Reviewers are not restricted to discs they had reviewed, but the choices must have been reviewed on MWI in the last 12 months (December 2019-November 2020).
“Renaissance polyphony from Central European sources is the subject of this disc. Eight out of ten pieces are first recordings. The Cappella Mariana is one of the finest vocal ensembles as far as the performance of this kind of repertoire is concerned. This disc offers the perfect combination of an interesting programme and superb singing.”
