Notes & Reviews:

Grammy® nominee The Dufay Collective has been performing and recording its unique brand of early music for nearly three decades, winning awards and widespread critical acclaim along the way. I Have Set My Hert So Hy marks the group's return to the recording studio, with a collection of 15th-century songs and instrumental numbers, much of which has been expertly reconstructed by the ensemble's director William Lyons. On this recording, The Dufays collaborate with vocal trio Voice, recreating the essence of music written for, and heard in, the royal courts and religious houses of Medieval England.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2015
It is truly wonderful to hear a song like 'Wyth ryth al my herte'... with its endless repetition of the name 'Annys'. Also particularly welcome is the closing suite of melodies from the Gresley Dances (c1500): this probably represents The Dufay Collective at their best.

Sunday Times, 9th August 2015
Lyons has also composed scrupulously idiomatic music for texts for which no music survives. The three women of Voice sing with alluring purity of timbre and blend, while Lyons's instrumentations enhance a mood of intimacy and refinement.
