Notes & Reviews:

"This release was the first recording of these two motets and their parody masses. It has certainly stood the test of time and is a most welcome reissue...The sound is full and warm, the spirit prayerful and noble. Tempos are very well chosen, and the music flows effortlessly yet effectively...Notes, texts, and translations. There are still very few recordings of these pieces."-American Record Guide

'Such committed singing of such wonderful music makes this a CD not to be missed' (Organists' Review)

'Under a new Master of Music, James O'Donnell, the Westminster Cathedral Choir are as intense and fervent as ever' (BBC Record Review)
