'This is quite the best performance of Tallis's 40-part Spem in alium that I have heard. Sung by a constellation of singers, many of them familiar names from other well-established choral groups, it is a gripping realisation' (Gramophone) » More

'Fine voices and steady nerves always work in favour of Spem in alium … Magnificat's cast list is about as good as it gets' (BBC Music Magazine) » More
