Reviews

'A highly accomplished and nicely varied survey of Restoration music' (Gramophone)

'The Abbey choir, under James O'Donnell, conveys the thrill of Purcell's music and the whole disc is marked by crucial attention to the articulation of words and the careful balancing of choral sonorities' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Clear and uncluttered sound, the antiphonal effects nicely caught in a faultless Hyperion recording' (International Record Review)

'Hear my prayer, O Lord lasts a mere two and a half minutes but has a massive, almost disturbing power. Other works exude a cheerful grace' (Financial Times)
