'I don't know how Hyperion keeps coming up with such fine young talent, but here we go again with another beautifully sung and superbly recorded effort from our English friends … excellent but seldom heard music, wonderful singing, fine engineering, and Hyperion's well-above-average documentation all add up to a thoroughly enjoyable experience' (American Record Guide)

'This venture is invaluable, and thoroughly enjoyable' (The Guardian)
