'The three medieval carols sung by male voices … are instantly attractive, whilst the one with a soprano line … though rhythmically complex, is amusing in its musical mazing … Ave Maria appears for four voices by Josquin Desprez, for seven voices by Philippe Verdelot and for four voices and for double choir by Victoria. The continuous sostenuto of the first two settings produces some delicious mild metal in the voices … a lovely record, beside which much of our accustomed Christmas musical fare seems meretricious' (Gramophone)
