'Restores a dimension of beauty that is often sacrificed in present day performances … happy the family that spent its leisure hours with this music, and happy the owner of this disc' (The Good CD Guide)

'James Bowman’s usual ease of tone is in full evidence here. He gives us meltingly sweet, gorgeous, resonant high notes, and fluidity of vocal line. Meanwhile, David Miller’s lute playing is sensitive and agile. Whether pleading for God’s redemption or wooing a lover, both singer and lutenist capture the word painting which is such a feature and strength of these songs. This is one to savour' (bbc.co.uk)
