Notes & Reviews:

When The Sixteen embarked upon their recording career back in 1982, few would have been able to predict quite how successful they would become, or how far they would go towards rehabilitating the little-known and barely recorded music of the four master composers of the sixteenth century featured on this set. In this their 30th anniversary year, we join them in celebrating the Golden Age of Polyphony by presenting their twelve discs of this repertoire in an attractively packaged (and priced) remastered 10-CD set.

”At an extraordinary low price, this is hard to resist. It would make a splendid gift to newer collectors.”-Fanfare

'English choral music at its finest: 11 hours 25 minutes of Tudor polyphony ... from the superlative Sixteen, who have helped restore this music to the early music mainstream' (The Observer)
