'A fine contribution to the repertoire on disc of twelfth-century polyphony. A composite sound of great beauty' (Gramophone)

'Absolutely stunning. Lost music re-born' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Sung with beguiling beauty. These readings renew our sense of wonder at western music's most fundamental innovation—the sound of two voices simultaneously singing different lines that not only fit with, but also enhance, each other' (The Sunday Times)

'Marvellously atmospheric. A rare and highly rewarding disc. Brilliant performances of neglected treasures' (Classic CD)

'Avec un splendide chœur pour le plain-chant, Red Byrd proposent une rencontre vivante et vibrante avec Léonin' (Répertoire, France)
