Bright, accurate singing in the lovely acoustics of the Hungarian National Museum’s main hall, but these chants from the 12th-century Graz 807 codex – plus some four-part works from Heinrich Isaac’s Choralis Constantinus – are a bit of a slog at 70 minutes, and the CD is probably best sampled one Adventus at a time, over a few days. Then, at least, the quality of the singing is foregrounded. Janka Szendrei and László Dobszay are doyenne and doyen respectively of this kind of repertoire and the balance of male and female voices, dark and light, is unfailingly maintained throughout.
