Notes & Reviews:

This Christmas boxed set gathers together some of the most renowned sacred works from the baroque era: Bach's B minor mass, Monteverdi's Vespers, Pergolesi and Scarlatti's Stabat Mater, Allegri's Miserere. These recordings are best sellers from the Naïve catalogue and feature top-level artists, including one of England's most respected baroque sopranos - Lucy Crowe.

The Independent, 29th December 2012
For once, the apparent hyperbole is simple statement of fact: the four albums compiled together here are all indeed masterpieces of baroque music, delivered with grace and majesty by outstanding performers.
