Reviews

'Just for fun I listened to all nine Alleluia settings one after the other and was astonished at the variety and interest of the music … Byrd at his most impressive and sublime here in the glorious Nunc Dimittis and in the delicate intricacy of Optimam partem. The recording and performances are superb' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)
