John Terauds, Toronto Star

“Un nouvel album, inspiré et, ma foi (!), inspirant; (…) L’Ensemble Caprice se présente ici sous ses plus somptueux atours”.
Frédéric Cardin, Espace Musique, Radio-Canada

“Un projet très spécial… d’une beauté sublime (…); …un arrangement extraordinaire”.
Catherine Perrin, Radio-Canada

“Goosebump enducing (…); (it) leaves me slack-jawed at every listen; The Ensemble Caprice Choir and Orchestra under the direction of Matthias Maute deliver impactful and thoughtful accounts of all of these works. This recording deservedly gets a 10.”
Jean-Yves Duperron, Classical Music sentinel

“Grâce et perfection… La démarche artistique et spirituelle de Matthias Maute a de quoi surprendre. C’est tout simplement beau.”
Le Parnasse musical
