Cappella Pratensis' recording of Ockeghem's Requiem is named Top Choice in Gramophone Magazine!

In the world-leading British music magazine GRAMOPHONE - the world’s best classical music reviews - Fabrice Fitch listened to and compared thirteen performances of Ockeghem's Requiem and described  Cappella's performance as TOP CHOICE! The Requiem by Johannes Ockeghem (1410-1497) is considered the oldest composed  Requiem  mass and was probably written between 1460 and 1480. We are extremely honoured by such a  wonderful review: 'a compact, rounded, thoughtful performance of impassive beauty, Cappella Pratensis fashion a coherent performance out of a varied collection of individual movements in a recording that grows with repeated listening'.
