Reviews

'These players demonstrate perfectly how a balance of scholarship and expert period performance can restore familiar music to such radiant good health that we wonder how it ever survived before' (BBC Music Magazine)

'El disco, interpretado por His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts de forma extraordinaria, con altísimo nivel de virtuosismo e intachable rigor estílistico, además de exquisita nitidez en la traducción del tejido polifónico, nos traslada a los salones de Enrique VIII en una experiencia musical tan instructiva como disfrutable' (Scherzo, Spain)
