Reviews

'Glorious. A rich, luminous acoustic halo seems to surround the music as it soars ever upward. Under David Hill's expert direction this choir has achieved a depth and body of tone totally appropriate to this full-blooded Iberian music' (The Good CD Guide)

'This goes to the head of the list of some fine versions of this requiem' (Fanfare, USA)
