Bartoli is perhaps the greatest mezzo of this era. her voice is rich and dark and colourful, her technique exquisite and her passion and style remarkable!

Cecilia Bartoli is, in my opinion, one of the greatest classical vocalists of our time. Her delivery on the pieces on this album are superb. For anyone who has studied voice and sung classical music you have performed one of these pieces. Her voice is angelic and powerful. This would be a great album for someone that is just starting to listen to opera. The songs are simple yet difficult when it comes to technique but with Cecilia Bartoli singing them she makes it look effortless. She is my favorite classical singer and I can guarantee you will fall in love with her after you hear her. She sings with great emotion and you can tell her heart is into each song. If you buy this album, I guarantee it will not be your last ablum you purchase by Cecilia Bartoli!!!!

My favorite Bartoli album. The songs assembled here are a wonderful bouquet, and she just paints every flower lovingly with her voice in a wonderful array of textures,nuances, overtones... The songs were arranged by one Alessandro Parisotti who lived in the 19th century and meant to revive those forgotten treasures; working from only a melodic line and numbered bass, he fashioned the piano accompaniment, as the liner notes have it, in keeping with the musical standards of his time. And to my ear, even though he strived to respect and leave untainted the original spirit and style, that means a definite touch of the romantic over these ''arie antiche'' (ancient songs), a unique blend that is like a rare herb liqueur from the monks... You won't find anything else quite like it! Just delicious...
