'Vocal chamber music of a very high order' (Choir & Organ)

'This ensemble offers an extraordinarily convincing and unfailingly absorbing realization of the intimacy and dark introspection central to these wonderful compositions. A recording that belongs in any proper library of Renaissance music' (American Record Guide)

'It has been a long wait, but we now have the Penitential Psalms readily available in a set that will give lasting satisfaction. Seize the day!' (Fanfare, USA)

'The magnitude of resonance created by this group is striking … Henry's Eight has the flair and ability to take us on a disctinctive journey back to the 1560s with an impressive display of sonorous singing. The eight voices have been captured splendidly by Hyperion, whose recording technique is to be praised' (Cathedral Music)
