The very definition of what an early music recording - heck, any recording - should be, Paul Hillier and the Theatre of Voices' Harmonia Mundi recording of Lassus' St. Matthew Passion, Visitatio, and Exsultet is as great a recording of any work by Lassus as has ever been made. The tone, intonation, and rhythm of the performances are beyond criticism. The Theatre of Voices from the University of California at Davis sings with wonderful lyricism and overwhelming drama. Solo tenor Paul Elliot sings with superb effect and incredible intensity.

Orlando de Lassus: St. Lasso: Lagrime di San Pietro. Matthew Passion - Visitatio - Exsultet. The only one of Lassus's four Passion settings to be printed in his lifetime, the St. Matthew successfully served its liturgical purpose while offering its singers and listeners music of high artistic merit. Alternating recitation-style chants (individual characters) with polyphonic sections (crowd), the work elegantly handles the dramatic action while creating a proper reverential mood, all of which is effectively captured on this, the only existing recording.
