Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review
[Cave] avoids absolute consistency of tone, colour, attack, phrasing and rhythmic profiling, and allows the music plenty of breathing space, especially at sonorous cadences or where the inner parts move with exceptional beauty or interest. He also brings to this music just enough Venetian warmth and playfulness.

BBC Music Magazine
Following the Spanish custom these performances accompany some of these pieces with a glorious jamboree of instruments doubling and decorating the vocal lines; this creates a particularly awesome climax in Verbum caro factum est... there's adroitness here too: the word 'Resurrexit' conjures from them a wonderful dancing rhythm.

The Guardian
The works on what is Magnificat's second disc of Rogier's music for Linn show how the composer's style, Flemish originally, absorbed ideas from other European choral traditions - including the antiphonal effects of Venetians such as Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli.

Classic FM Magazine
The grandeur doesn't pall, as Philip Cave varies the texture by employing a continuo group that includes both lute and harp... Rogier is not a top-flight composer but these lively performances are well worth hearing.
