Notes & Reviews:

"The cathedral has an enormous acoustic in which Savall, with customary concern for beauty of sound, builds a performance of swelling grandeur and imposing ceremonial weight. Alia Vox's coupling is also unique, though the second piece is hardly unknown, and Savall's rendering of the famous 'Battalia', despite being recorded in a more manageable acoustic, is among the more polite on record." - Lindsay Kemp, Gramophone

Penguin Guide
The overall balance is amazingly successful, the separation is natural but is all bathed in the richly resonant cathedral ambience. This is a magnificent disc in every way and almost certainly first choice for the Requiem.
