'These reissues epitomise the qualities that make The Sixteen one of Britain's outstanding choral groups: distilled purity of sound: impeccable ensemble and intonation; long-breathed lines. Harry Christophers takes an introspective view of Taverner's monumental Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas, producing a performance of untrammelled serenity.' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Marvellous music … well worth reissuing' (Early Music Review)

'For the most important English composer of his generation, this series of Masses is long overdue, and we are fortunate that it is being completed with such a high level of success' (Fanfare, USA)
