Reviews

'His performance meets the best standards of The Tallis Scholars, with every detail well controlled and everything clearly audible but at the same time a musical freedom that brings the music to life … the singers cope effortlessly with the chromatic complexities of the famous early Timor et tremor. Once again, then, The Tallis Scholars and the Gimell label have produced something spectacularly worthwhile' (Gramophone)
