Notes & Reviews:

"The singing and instrumental playing are first rate, as we expect from these forces, and I have to say that the way instruments are used here (including the interludes and introductory passages) really helps move the action along and also helps to create a sense of occasion that, combined with the excellent recorded sound, enlivens and enriches the drama. A must for early music fans!" -Classics Today (10/10)

The Telegraph - Elizabeth Roche
As this superbly spirited and colourful performance shows, [The Play of Daniel] is still a fresh and gripping piece of musical theatre... This is one of this year's outstanding early-music recordings

Gramophone Magazine
This medieval drama is brought vividly to life by the early music group
