'I'm not sure what medieval ears would have made of it but there's no denying Sinfonye's capacity for alerting us to a small but distinctive repertoire from an age and mentality essentially no different from our own' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'The disc is irresistible. The singing and playing are ravishing, the sound immediate and caressing. This month's list is full of unfamiliar things but this may be the loveliest' (Fanfare, USA)
