Notes & Reviews:

"While the Cantus and Hyperion programs are clearly the ones to have, this new Virgin release moves to the head of the list on several counts. First, its coverage is perhaps the most comprehensive. It is the only program, too, to give us the sole duet that includes a tenor. Indeed, with a rich pool of ten singers to draw on, the vocal combinations are wonderfully varied, and the singing itself is superb." - Barker, ARG
