Reviews

'Works by two 16th-century masters of sacred music are here given sublime performances' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Westminster Cathedral Choir has had Palestrina coursing through its veins for generations and if anybody can make it sound real and vital for the passive listener, it can; and it does, with supreme success here … a truly absorbing experience, given the complete ease and naturalness with which this outstanding London choir performs this elevated music. It is, indeed, a rare listening pleasure' (International Record Review)
