Reviews

'There is remarkable beauty in these varied pieces, beauty that is brought out in the superb singing of this ensemble. This is an example of a totally perfect release' (American Record Guide)

'One's ear is instantly captivated … this disc comes with unhesitating recommendation, and not only for those to whom medieval music is already a familiar delight. The combination of scholarship and musicianship brought to bear by Page and his singers is wholly admirable; in particular, the ease and grace with which Gothic Voices negotiate the sometimes angular textures of their repertoire is a source of fascination and wonder' (Gramophone Early Music)

'Another fascinating exploration of music from the ever-questing and imaginative Christopher Page and his Gothic Voices. There is nothing here that fails to compel. A very attractive prospect for even the most reluctant medieval explorer' (Classic CD)
