Notes & Reviews:

"...My first impulse on hearing this disc was to commend it unreservedly to each and every man, woman, and child on the planet, including those who think they don't like religious music, choral music, or music... Heatedly recommended." -Fanfare

'Tonus Peregrinus is a double quartet of expert singers brought together by the composer. With firm, fresh voices and precise intonation ... they sound as ideal a group for fulfilling his intentions as he is likely to find on this side of the Heaven to which so much of his music aspires' (Gramophone)

'Seven shorter pieces complete the programme, the best of which are Adoro te and Amen, both of which make striking use of dynamic and spatial effects. The performances are excellent' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Heatedly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
