If you love Monteverdi, you’ll like this: vivid, spirited, exciting, persuasive and emotional performances of sacred works by a Portuguese amateur composer and protégé of King João (John) I. Like Monteverdi, Rebelo collides old and new sacred styles with much virtuosity and expression in a variety of vocal and instrumental scorings, which must have seemed shockingly daring in the stile antico-obsessed Iberian peninsula. A major discovery, there’s never a dull moment as these very fine singers and players glow with convincing commitment, balance and clarity.
