Notes & Reviews:

This release heralds a new association between Opus Arte and the Magdalen College Choir, Oxford, under its director, Daniel Hyde - Dietrich Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri is considered to be the first Lutheran oratorio - Renowned soloists include John-Mark Ainsley and Robin Blaze - Features Gramophone Award-winning instrumental group Phantasm

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
This new issue [has] a decidedly English slant, which provides striking contrasts with the many versions deploying continentally trained voices. The lightly articulated and youthful sounding declamation of the Magdalen Choir is stylishly supported by the small instrumental ensemble, Phantasm, whose playing is both elegant and expressive.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2014
The 26-strong Choir of Magdalen College swamp the half-dozen players in choruses - although the choir's confidently precise sonorities are laudable...there is rich splendour in choral textures during the final cantata 'Ad faciem'.
