'Gothic Voices at their best … an astonishing and varied collection' (Gramophone)

'A commendable and enjoyable disc' (Early Music Review)

‘The performances are exquisite—neat, clean, with penetrating tone’ (American Record Guide)

'Another happy triumph for Christopher Page and his team. As usual with Gothic Voices the singing is seamless and utterly beyond criticism. A perfect hour’s listening' (International Record Review)

'A winner. A magical evocation of a lost English 12th-century world' (Classic CD)

'Helps us to understand how far advanced the music of the 13th century had become, while still appreciating its own brand of beauty. Gothic Voices has the skill to bring it all to life, as they do everything they touch. This is a permanent addition to any good medieval collection' (Fanfare, USA)

‘A wealth of music and poetry now reunited and brought to life’ (Early Music Today)
