'The Tallis Scholars add Alonso Lobo's fine and passionate Versa est in luctum as a most welcome makeweight … The Tallis Scholars are slightly better at projecting all the details of the six-voice polyphony and have the edge on intonation as well as diction … The Tallis Scholars produce a more convincingly Iberian sound, their sopranos finding it easier to project the open-throated quality that seems right for the music' (Gramophone)

'Inspiring and deeply moving' (The Daily Telegraph)

'One of the biggest audiences for a late-night prom I’ve ever seen' (The Guardian)
