Notes & Reviews:

"While all of the music here is worth repeated hearing (and performing!), for me the highlights are Sampson's Salve radix and Quam pulcra est (those cross-relations!), Jacotin's Beati omnes (sung by the lower voices), with its wonderfully flowing, interwoven lines and thrillingly resonant harmonies, and the opening O Christe Jesu, pastor bone by John Taverner, a perfectly written little gem that should be in every serious choir's repertoire. I can't emphasize enough how much of the success of this recording is due to Alamire's impeccably balanced, full-bodied, well-tuned sound, so expertly recorded in three different venues--and to the scholarship and clearly inspired direction of David Skinner. Don't delay; you'll love this!" -Classics Today (10/10)
