Notes & Reviews:

"In these beautifully sculpted and richly textured performances by the Choir of Westminster Cathedral under Master of Music James O'Donnell, there is a clarity, a lightness, an openness and a spiritual optimism evident that Spanish music from the same period often lacks. Featuring five motets and a set of Lamentations by Manuel Cardose, a Panis angelicus by Joao Lourenco Rebelo, five motets and a Magnificat by Pedro de Cristo, and an Alma rememptoris mater by Aires Fernandez, this 2007 re-issue consists largely of works heretofore known only to listeners who heard the disc when it was first released in 1992, but anyone who enjoys sacred choral music of the late 16th and early 17th century will surely enjoy this disc." -All Music

'Although this music is likely to be unknown to most collectors it will prove, as it has to me, a welcome and important discovery' (The Tablet)

'Delectable though this music is, it needs performers who can do it justice, and James O'Donnell and his choir do that and then some. Whether depicting a soul thirsting for the Lord's rest, or giving thanks for salvation, the smooth trebles soar into the rafters of Westminster. This is a CD that brings the listener one step closer to heaven' (BBC Online)
