Reviews

'A very special achievement … music of the very highest order, seldom recorded. Essential listening!' (Gramophone)

'A fascinating disc with superbly informative and enticing notes by Christopher Page' (BBC Music Magazine)

'At last, for the first time in over thirty years, we can hear this glorious work … as always, the booklet material is an absolute model of what these things should be; a self-contained lesson in medieval aesthetics, miraculously presented' (BBC Record Review)

'Christopher Page traduit avec toujours autant de sûreté mais aussi beaucoup de transparence les longues et expressives phrases musicales de cet ensemble remarquable' (Répertoire, France)

'Comme à l'accoutumée, une impeccable justesse le dispute à la rigueur rythmique, à la vocalité, à l'homogénéité des ensembles, au sens du phrasé' (Diapason, France)
