'This recording … deserves a renewed life as the only currently available recording, not only for the significance of this Mass among the works of Dufay, but also for the sensitivity of Kirkman's approach to a musical style that sits on the cusp of the Middle Ages and Renaissance' (American Record Guide)
'La vitalité et l'éclat sont magnifiquement rendus dans cette interprétation anglo-saxonne qui impose un bel équilibre entre l'euphorie sensuelle habituelle de ses chœurs a cappella et le dynamisme d'une lecture expressive et claire' (Diapason, France)
