'The great strength of The Tallis Scholars' Ockeghem disc is in Peter Phillips's choice of two contrasting Masses … Phillips's approach to the work (as he himself describes it) is more like 'chamber music, gentle and undemonstrative'. Yet the sense of excitement here is none the less palpable in the judicious use of solo voices: listen to the kaleidoscopic changes in the Credo, and exhilarating final melismas. The singers' individual contributions are the touchstone of this splendid reading of Au travail suis, those who want to savour Ockeghem at his boldest really ought to start here. The Tallis's frequently astonishing technical resources have rarely if ever been used to better purpose' (Gramophone)
