Notes & Reviews:

This album was a Gramophone Editor's choice in 2004 and is a superlative representation of Obrecht who was the most celebrated composer of masses in the late 15th Century. The review states: `The Clerks' Group back on superb form....this collection is one of the strongest and most well-rounded introductions to Obrect in the catalogue...performances of the motets which complete the program are equally delightful: all of it top-notch Obrecht, which is saying something.`
