Reviews

'The answer to many prayers; a blockbusting survey of choral masterpieces performed by a choir of exceptional calibre' (Classic FM Magazine)

'For anyone eager to sample varied music from the Golden Age of polyphony this is a perfect disc' (Classic CD)

'If ever a programme was right up a choir's street, then this is it! From the fanfare-like opening of Exultate Deo and its soul-mates by Viadana, Gabrieli, Byrd and Monteverdi, through the linear beauties of Ave verum corpus (as set by Byrd and Philips) and Parsons' Ave Maria, the imploring devotion of Lotti's incomparable Crucifixus and the serenity of Tallis's O nata lux, all is brought glowingly alive. A real joy' (Organists' Review)
