Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times
This is a captivating sequence of plainsong and early polyphony, justified by the common link of the Judaic notion of the Israelites as daughters of Zion. The Estonian vocal group Vox Clamantis, recorded in a generously resonant acoustic, adopt a stance that manages to be both liberal and respectful.

Estonian ensemble Vox Clamantis brings together singers and instrumentalist who share an interest in Gregorian chant as the basis of all European art music. Their interpretation of medieval music is never purely 'historical': while always remaining true to the spirit of this repertoire, the approach to the work and the selection of pieces is contemporary. On the present disc, drawing upon the rich tradition in music history o the theme of Filia Sion, Vox Clamantis presents medieval music from Gregorian chant to works by Perotinus, Hildegard von Bingen and Petrus Wilhelmi de Grudencz. In the Old Testament, "Filia Sion" - the Daughter of Zion - refers to both the holy city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people who builth the Temple on Mount Zion. In the medieval Christian tradition, Holy Mary became the incarnation of the Daughter of Zion as the personification of the church.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The performance is clean, but tends somewhat toward the practice of pitch inflection, which has become more commonplace in recent chant recordings. The notes dwell on mystical theology; that may be interesting, but we aren't told very much about the music. Texts in English.
