'It's a thrilling sound … you can see why Peter Phillips choose the Taverner for the occasion, it's a great display piece for the ensemble … on their own terms in this Taverner Mass and the 3 Magnificats settings that follow The Tallis Scholars are unsurpassed' (BBC Radio 3 CD Review)

'It would be hard to think of a more fitting work to celebrate The Tallis Scholars' 40th Anniversary' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Two sopranos, flying the extremities of their range with a security, purity and silvery gleam that is absolutely breathtaking' (The Times)

'An almost tangible compactness of polyphony is allied to impeccable 'white' purity of sound, with ecstatic results' (The Sunday Times)

'This is an exceptionally fine disc. The music itself is compellingly interesting and Peter Phillips and his marvellously disciplined singers bring the music to life in a most exciting way' (MusicWeb International)
