Notes & Reviews:

This CD is a new collection of premiere recordings featuring Magnificat, who specialize in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries. The lush textures and colors for which Rogier is renowned are highlighted by the singers and musicians. Magnificat is one of the world's premier vocal ensembles.

Gramophone Magazine
I'm not sure what inspired Magnificat's director, Philip Cave, to fly the flag for Philippe Rogier but this recording vindicates his decision to do so.

BBC Music Magazine
The Council of Trent would have been pleased: with just two voices per part, and with clear diction and articulation from the members of Magnificat, the texts are generally easy to follow. The lower voices are captured especially well, and the blend between the voices and His Majesty's Sagbutts and Cornetts is gorgeous.

International Record Review
This is a superb, vibrant disc of some first-rate music...The singers of Magnificat have a rich, creamy sound, well blended but with each voice part's individuality also fully audible. They also have an excellent sense of line, particularly valuable in Rogier's dense writing.
