Notes & Reviews:

"...This recording includes one piece of chant...and three works of sacred choral music...All these works are examples of Taverner's 'cantus-firmus'-style writing, that is, new polyphonic works based on a pre-existing chant...The singing here again is excellent. The voices are wonderfully bright and clear--especially the sopranos." -Loewen, ARG

'There are so many special moments that if you are a Taverner fan all I can do is to recommend strongly that you sample this CD' (CDReview)

'To sum up, it is one of the joys of being alive in the 1990s to be able to hear this incomparable music so competently and sympathetically - in fact ideally - performed' (Organists' Review)
