AllMusic Review by

These Holy Week songs from Messina, Enna and Catania in Sicily range from peasant tradition to local versions of Roman Catholic ritual performance. A few of the cuts, inevitably, are by old parties whose main merit is remembering the song, but most (particularly the choral examples, many of which show church singing profoundly influenced by local polyphony) are superb and extremely moving.
