Notes & Reviews:
"Lassus wrings from this darkly redemptive story music of near-miraculous psychological acuity and pathos. Jackson's singers keep the music moving, whilst remaining attentive to the significance of the merest details, and the final motet has an impressive, detached serenity." -Gramophone Magazine
"This French Canadian ensemble is light on its feet, manoeuvrable and responsive to the texts, which is what this music needs more than anything. It also has admirable clarity of delivery" -Classic FM Magazine ***
