Reviews

'There seems to be nothing The Tallis Scholars undertake that falls short of the mark … The Tallis Scholars' performance here is, like the music, born of purity and simplicity. And, also like these chants, it transcends the physical confines of notation and text to allow the listener to dwell, undistracted by harmony, instrumental accompaniment, or complex contrapunctal texture, on the liturgy's higher, more immediate purpose … the music on its own is quite beautiful and extraordinarily eloquent, almost hypnotic in its effect' (CDReview)
