Notes & Reviews:

Alonso Lobo may be remembered principally for the great funerary motet Versa est in luctum, but his setting of the biblical Lamentations must also be counted among the masterpieces of Renaissance polyphony. No choir has a more distinguished tradition in such music than Westminster Cathedral Choir, led here by Martin Baker on this heavenly recording.

The Observer, 5th June 2016
Rich and expressive accounts here by Westminster Cathedral Choir, with baritones and basses in particularly sonorous form.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2016
Westminster Cathedral Choir is at its best in the large-scale drama of the Credo of the Mass... though they discover a truly moving spaciousness in O quam suavis est... overall, a convincing introduction to a neglected composer.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2016
Nothing will prepare listeners for the beauty of Lobo's Lamentations... this, for me, is as good as it gets both in terms of performance and in terms of a school of polyphony beyond the works of Victoria.
