'In the Midst of Life' is Gramophone Editor's Choice, May 2015

Our latest album 'In the Midst of Life' has been named Editor's Choice in the May 2015 issue of Gramophone. Alexandra Coghlan writes: 'Contrapunctus are special. Their first disc, ‘Libera nos: The Cry of the Oppressed’ (Signum, 11/13), was seriously, startlingly good: the intimacy of The Cardinall’s Musick, the rich, glowing tone of The Sixteen and the textual drama of Stile Antico. Their second disc proves that this was no one-off.' Click to read the full review on the Gramophone website.
