'These Lamentations … attest to the marvellous sensibility of the group and to the durability of an inimitable vocal style' (Classica, France)» More

'These Lamentations are not only serious liturgical entities, but they are gorgeous choral works in their own right, and Peter Phillips has been doing this kind of repertoire longer than almost anyone around these days—he knows how to do 'gorgeous' and 'liturgically correct' both at the same time, and we have him and his superb singers to thank for much of today's serious focus on early and Renaissance choral music' (ClassicsToday.com)» More
