Notes & Reviews:

John Taverner's Missa Mater Christi sanctissima and Western Wynde Mass are among the finest choral masterpieces from sixteenth-century England, written by one of the greatest English composers. These sublime performances from Westminster Abbey Choir and James O'Donnell bring out all the colors and nuance of Taverner's compositional style.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2016
These are very sound, lucid performances in every sense... in comparison with the Taverner Consort, James O'Donnell's reading of Western Wynde is rather softer-centred, but... a work as resourcefully inventive as this both sustains and deserves such contrasting approaches.
