Reviews

'Anyone familiar with the work of The Tallis Scholars will know exactly what mastery they are capable of as well. Here, as usual, they offer perfect intonation and a clear, incisive texture, resulting in a sound of stunning, unequivocal beauty. The group ranging in size from 10 to 16 singers, delivers an impressive range of dynamics … if you can perform with the sheer expertise and refinement of The Tallis Scholars, there's really little you can do wrong. This disc is eloquent proof of that' (Gramophone)
