'An important recording landmark' (Gramophone)

'Richard Marlow and his youthful choir deserve credit not just for salvaging this music but for presenting it in such vital and responsive performances' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A noble achievement which should do much for Sweelinck's reputation … Trinity College Chapel Choir seems ideally suited to this music. Diction is good, intonation flawless and the antiphonal effects well balanced. A worthy addition to the collection' (Early Music)
This sparkling and joyous motet first appeared in 1619 as one of 37 Cantiones Sacrae by Sweelinck, published in Antwerp, all five-voiced and with Latin texts. A delightful feature is the appearance of bell-like figures to the word ‘noe’, replacing some of the customary alleluias.
