'Indeed, the choir as a whole convey perfectly the ebb and flow of Sheppard's polyphony in performances as refreshing and calming as the effect of water cascading down the side of a lakeland fell. The overall balance is generally good (the full chords that mark the end of important sections are wonderfully resonant), the lower voices providing a solid—though not inexpressive—foundation for the soaring flights of fantasy above … the acoustic of the Norfolk church, now favoured by The Tallis Scholars for their recordings, is lively and clear, and contributes an aura of timelessness, especially to the chant … this is a record you will want to listen to again and again' (Gramophone)
