Many of us, who deeply love polyphonic vocal music and admire the technical accuracy of the greatest British vocal ensembles feel that we were missing a greater expressiveness, a deeper musicality in their performances. Fortunately enough, Odhecaton, the Italian group founded and directed by Paolo Da Col, is the perfect antidote to our concerns: this formidable Italian male choir combines its prodigious musicality to a surprising dramatic capacity to communicate the meaning of the texts, and an undisputed technical accuracy. That’s why all their recordings have obtained the most important international awards, that’s why listening to this ensemble becomes an ecstatic, simply irresistible pleasure. There’s no doubt: Odhecaton is one of the best vocal groups of all times.
