Reviews

'Strongly recommended as a step on the path to discovering one of the outstanding musicians of the late 16th/early 17th century' x (Fanfare, USA)

'The complete restoration of a great composer's name may be beyond the capacity of a single CD, but if anything can do the trick, this one ought to. A release to treasure' (CDReview)

'One of the finest composers nurtured in Elizabethan England … these performances can only enhance the composer's reputation further' (Early Music)

'Voici un disque de toute beauté pour fêter Palestrina' (Répertoire, France)
