'Palestrina continues to be well served by the Tallis Scholars … the business-like Missa Brevis is captured in such a way that every detail is carefully reproduced, there's a breadth, distance and slight blurring to Missa Nasce la gioja mia that adds to the magic and the mystery. This is one of the best records of Palestrina currently on the market' (Gramophone)
