'There are forty-seven separate tracks here and on each one you will hear singing of the very highest quality. More than that you will experience music-making that’s born out of scholarship and a deep understanding of each composer’s music and how it should be presented; yet the scholarship is lightly worn. Nineteen very different and highly individual composers are represented and all are expertly served … a splendid representation of the art of The Tallis Scholars. If you are familiar with their work the set is a welcome and highly pleasurable way to refresh your memory. If you haven’t sampled much of their recorded output before—or if you’re unfamiliar with the richly rewarding field of Renaissance vocal music – then I hope this set may lead you to many new discoveries; you could not wish for better guides than Peter Phillips and his expert singers' (MusicWeb International)
