'An exceptional recorded event. Ravishing music. A very fine achievement all round' (Gramophone)

'The music is glorious, the performances exemplary, the sense of occasion overwhelming … another marvellous concept from Robert King and his redoubtable consort, here breathtakingly recreating the celebrations which would have taken place on Ascension Day circa 1600. Glitteringly recorded and a superb booklet' (The Sunday Times)
