Painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, pioneer of flight, anatomist, scientist - yet according to Vasari, Leonardo’s first job outside Florence was as a musician. “Music cannot be regarded other than as the sister of painting', said Leonardo, so for the 500th anniversary of his death in 2019, I Fagiolini and Martin Kemp offer reflections of his images in vocal music: aural Fantasia dei Vinci - art through the prism of music.

There are several fine compositions on this disc, which is mostly Christmas focused, but like all of Tavener’s music, can be enjoyed anytime. The sound on this recording is simply splendid, and it captures the ambiance of Winchester Cathedral. The performances are spot on, with the chorus spread seamlessly between speakers. When the organ appears, it is deep and resonant. All in all, a lovely disc and one that is highly recommended.
