'A revelatory disc. If the ravishing sound of the ensemble does not convince you that this music is of the highest quality, then nothing will' (The Good CD Guide)

'These performances reach an unrivalled level of excellence ... and show just how marvellous medieval music can be' (BBC Record Review)

"Enthusiasm abounds in this landmark recording, sometimes overwhelmingly. The textless or partially-texted vocalisations that cocoon the poetry occasionally tip over into jarringly reedy vocal lines. Subtleties elsewhere - generally in Andrew Lawrence-King's playing - compensate for occasional longeurs." BBC Music Magazine, July 2008 ***
