Notes & Reviews:

Classic CD
Glorious music, gloriously performed.

Gramophone Magazine
An exceptional recorded event. Ravishing music. A very fine achievement all round.

Sunday Times
The music is glorious, the performances exemplary, the sense of occasion overwhelming ... another marvellous concept from Robert King and his redoubtable consort, here breathtakingly recreating the celebrations which would have taken place on Ascension Day circa 1600. Glitteringly recorded and a superb booklet.
