'This CD will do much to further De Lalande's reputation … gripping choral singing … stylish playing … highly attractive' (BBC Radio 3 CD Review)

'Jeffrey Skidmore and the orchestra and choir…perform these works stylishly, executing decorations with a gentle, almost casual swagger and responding to the shape and stress of phrase as if to the Gallic manner born. The soloists, an impressive line-up of Baroque specialists, more than live up to their reputation' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Treat yourselves and stand by to be impressed by all concerned' (Early Music Review)

'These are early music performances of the highest standard … this recording will delight admirers of the French baroque, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to more general listeners' (American Record Guide)
