'A festive, celebratory disc in many ways, and a great introduction to music that deserves to be celebrated' (Gramophone)

'This is a magical and moving chance to hear music directly from the circle of Henry V … yt would be difficult to imagine more tuneful, exacting interpretations' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This repertoire testifies to the haunting purity of music from the early 15th century … The Binchois Consort under Andrew Kirkman performs with discreet, moving expressiveness' (The Daily Telegraph)

'It's subtle, beautiful stuff and no one would doubt its spiritual sincerity … the performances are faultless' (The Guardian)

'Stylishly sung, this is well worth hearing for an insight into an under-recognised period of English music-making' (Scotland on Sunday)
