Reviews

'These performances reach an unrivalled level of excellence … and show just how marvellous medieval music can be' (BBC Record Review)

'The beauty of this once-so-remote music is all immaculately tuned and articulated: what else do you expect from Gothic Voices? … I hope those who didn't collect the set first time are doing so now' (Early Music Review)

'A revelatory disc. If the ravishing sound of the ensemble does not convince you that this music is of the highest quality, then nothing will' (The Good CD Guide)
