Notes & Reviews:

"An essential addition to any collection of English church music." -International Record Review

'Sung with sensitivity and vigour. Vocal ranges are perfectly suited to Robin Blaze and Stephen Varcoe. Dovetailing between the solo and vocal sections is beautifully managed throughout, the countertenor quiet outstanding' (Gramophone)

'An essential addition to any collection of English church music.' (International Record Review)

'The choral sound is exemplary - clean, but edged with an appealing English softness ... a glorious sound.' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Hill breathes new life into Gibbons' musical and spoken rhetoric, using tempo and dynamics to set up conflicts between vocal lines. Perfectly complemented by Robin Blaze' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This recording is a well-balanced introduction to Gibbons' obvious musical talent' (Scotland on Sunday)
